Netscape Navigator Database Error?

» close window

The Question is:

The Netscape Navigator site certificates have expired.
Following the instructions in the FAQ, I loaded certificates from Verisign and Thawte.
Now, I get an error message, "The security library has experienced a database error.  You will probably be unable to connect to this site securely."
This is only a minor improvement over the incessant clicking behavior of an expired certificate.  Why?  I deleted the VeriSign and Thawte certificates that were downloaded, and now I get asked --once-- whether I'd like to accept a site's certificate witho
ut verification.
OK, Wiz, what's wrong?  I followed the instructions in the FAQ EXACTLY (repeated delete/download certificate cycle several times to be sure).

The Answer is :

  This initially appears to be a database corruption somewhere underneath
  Netscape Navigator.  Please contact the Compaq Customer Support Center
  for assistance in resolving this matter -- restoration of the file from
  the distribution or from a (valid) BACKUP may well be required.
