1) Plug-ins: I've been successful getting plug-ins
   that work for 4.77 to work for 6.2. I copied the
   relevant .so files to /usr/local/netscape/plug-ins.
   What would be the best way to share plug-ins between
   4.77 and 6.2? For example,
   the "plugger" debian package stores in
   /usr/lib/netscape/plugins-libc[56]/. How would I
   best ensure that is seen by both

2) Bookmarks: The bookmarks tool has an "Import
   bookmarks" menu under the File menu. I can't
   remember exactly what I did to personalize the
   tool bar at the same time, but since I forget
   I think it must have been easy. :)
