Take the instructions at #36 of the Netscape7 UFAQ, and apply it to Mozilla. Basically you have to delete the GRE directory between installs.

Ok, thanks, gonna try that solution and tell here back again what's happened (i wish i come with mozilla again) Now i'm in my old PC with a perfectly installed mozilla, but i wan't the other PC running this :)

EDIT: don't work again, i have follow the instructions and have deleted all the things. I'm still working from ie right now :(

I'm asking what is preventing from mozilla to run?

Ok, now i'm on mozilla, and gonna answer this questions. The problem was the oleaut32.dll that is outdated by another program that i have installed. Today ill try to install Firebird, and at least that browser tell me that there is a problem with that file. I have checked other apps and happens the same. So i've downloaded the oleaut32 ver 2.4.xxxx and copy over the old one in c:\windows\system and everything is ok now. Wondering why mozilla don't alert the user about this problem with a simple box telling "OLEAUT32.DLL is outdated"

Thanks, indeed, and, wow, this is surfing not that ie stuff.

I've just updated to 1.6 on a citrix server and no one seems to be able to open the app except for me. I installed it using the add/remove programs, verified I had the latest dll you mention earlier and even checked the security on the mozilla directory as well as the registry permissions. Still no luck. As a side note, I also updated to JVM 142. I have two citrix servers and it installed just fine on the other one. I'm not sure what's different. I also compared the environment PATHs and they are the same.

I am in the process of loading up a new hard drive with Windows 98, and already knowing that I.E. will not let me go everywhere, I loaded up Mozilla 1.7 also. I can make a connection with I.E. and go a few places, but when trying Mozilla 1.7 it stops after the splash.

As mentioned, I went back and did an Uninstall. I deleted every reference to Mozilla and GRE I could find in the Windows and Program Files directories. Then went into the registry and found a few things there and deleted maybe six folders.

I have then reinstalled Mozilla, same problems. I did all of the above deletions and reinstalled with same results.

I must have missed yet more than one place then. Is there a list of places to look and delete items, for there must be more than what is noted above.

All I can say is my Mozilla won't run any pages.
The initial program starts, but after that when I try to view websites an error message reading: "connection refused" is displayed. I tried going througha and looking at all my connections/dial-up info, everything was fine, and EI runs fine. So I am stumped at what to do now.
