Removing Netscape's Shop button

Removing Netscape's Shop button

With version 4.7 of Netscape comes the addition of a Shop button. It appears on the navigator bar right next to the Stop button. When I first hit it, I was trying to stop loading the current page (which was taking forever). Instead of seeing what I had managed to get from the slow site, I was whisked off to Netscape's shopping web site. I'm convinced by the placement of this button that they're fishing for just such mistakes.

The "Shop" button can be removed by shutting down your browser and adding the line

to your .netscape/preferences.js.

Thanks to the following for this information:
