Netscape Composer Opens C Drive
I've used Netscape Composer (comes with Netscape Communicator) for five years now to create and edit all of my webpages.
I still use Netscape Communicator 4.77 because I like Composer better on that version than on newer versions.
I just got a new Dell Dimension 4400 with Windows XP Home (the old computer was also Dell w/WinME). I installed Netscape Communicator 4.77 and went to update some webpages using Composer. When I opened a webpage on my new hard drive to edit it, up comes "Directory listing of /C:" and a list of everything on my C drive, not the webpage I want to edit.
When I open the same file on my old Dell (via my network) the page opens and I can edit it as normal.
I tried this with several web pages and each time, any file on the new Dell hard drive opened with a view of my hard drive contents. All files on my old Dell via the network open fine.
I thought perhaps my html files got corrupt during the transfer over to the new system, so I dragged a file over from the old Dell, tried to open it and again, a root directory list shows up, but no web page. If I double-click on any of the C drive folders, an Netscape Composer 'Image Properties' window comes up with the Image Location shown as "internal-gopher-menu" and the Link To line as: "/C%7C/DRIVERS/"
I uninstalled Netscape and reinstalled it and still the problem exists.
I ran a Norton anti-virus scan with current definitions and an online Housecall scan. Both came up clean.
Any ideas what in the world is happening?
