I just downloaded Netscape 7.0.2 from "linux version" and am running it under linux emulation on freebsd-5.1. The problem i am encountering , and i encountered the same issue with the latest mozilla..... under linux emulation, is that when i exit Netscape or restart the system i am meet with the select user-profile *to start Netscape section. Ok, for ex. say i am running Netscape under the "default" profile, i have all my mail accounts setup, proxy setting etc.... now i need to shutdown my system, restart it , or just restart i start Netscape 

# /usr/compat/linux/usr/local/netscape/netscape

Now i am ask when profile to start Netscape as, so i select the previous "default" i had been running Netscape under. The problem is after selecting "default" and clicking on start i am getting this error about it cant use that profile as its already in use...but its not because this is the first instance of Netscape i am attempting to start after a reboot. The only way i can get Netscape to start is to create another profile, which it does the same to after a reboot or restart. for. ex. i can create default 2 and start Netscape but if i try to start Netscape again with that profile its says that profile is already in use. If anybody has had this issue and solved it, i would appreciate some guidance on this. 

thanks, and have a good day.
