Mozilla terminates if using ROOT account

By Net Designer ·
RH8.0

If I log in as user root and try to browse the internet, mozilla opens the browser window but then closes it.
If I log in as any other user - it works fine and i can browse internet.
Why is this happening?
Thanks.

Is your root account prevented, as a matter of policy, from using a network? (This is a good policy. A non-root account should be used for Internet access.)

Log in with your regular user account, then
linux@hostname:/$su -
enter root password
then start netscape like so:
netscape &
or
firefox &
or
opera

Hope this helps
