I'll believe you :-)

My Netscape 4.79 is brain dead. It doesn't have a lock icon, it can't
cope with encrypted connections to my ldap (Openldap 2.1.12) server with
has fully-configured CA/public key stuff and needs 'allow bind_v2' in

But - my Netscape 4.7+ comes from the time when we in Europe had to
accept USA decreed ideas of what was good for us and what was not.
Luckily the Dutch, Australians and Swedes put an end to that.

Interesting. I can see how that might be possible with Mozilla 1+, which
has all the things Netscape 4.7+ doesn't, but ...
