Several people have pointed me at Netscape's app-defaults file, which lists a bazillion things you can usefully tweak. I now have no splash screen, no blinking text, and no useless toolbar buttons. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be anything related to the Energizer-bunny bookmarks headers.
Here's how it's done: add this to
.X(resources|defaults) and restart X:
Netscape*toolBar.search.isEnabled: false Netscape*toolBar.destinations.isEnabled: false Netscape*toolBar.print.isEnabled: false Netscape*toolBar.myshopping.isEnabled: false Netscape*toolBar.viewSecurity.isEnabled: false Netscape*noAboutSplash: true Netscape*blinkingEnabled: false
I just love the way the toolbar resource names have nothing to do with their visible labels.
"But the Security button is useful!" I hear you scream. Yeah, but you can get the same thing by clicking on the little lock icon in the left corner of the status bar. I want to keep the status bar, it's actually useful...
The file to dig through is Netscape.ad, which will probably be in /usr/lib/netscape or wherever the installation directory wound up. It has amusing bitter comments by JWZ.
