Same thing happens to me with Red Hat 6.2 and Netscape 4.72. I noticed
this originally after install when I try to get rid of some of the crap
they put on the default window. It isn't an issue for me since I want
those setting forever and it stays that way after I restart Netscape.

Looks like it might be a bug to me.
