    Hi,

    my new knowledge : this is a netscape feature. I mind really feature not "feature"=bug. Can someone confirm/disprove it? I thing it is very strange. If I call browser on other machine maybe I have a some reason. When it is a netscape-feature, it is possible to disable it?

    Thanx
    Martin
