    My new computer uses XP and I downloaded Netscape browser, which i
    mostly use.
    However, the "back" and "forward" buttons have been grayed out and I
    can't figure out why.
    Can anyone help me to get them functioning?
    Thanks in advance.

    I would say that is almost certainly your problem. The
    'back' and 'forward' buttons rely on browsing history,
    not some sort of magic. You need to have history enabled
    for those buttons to work.
