Just today I was thinking about this issue.  I am of the opinion that
upgrading to NetScape 2.X isn't the best solution.  I don't know the work
that would be involved, but I would rather see the default NetScape config
to have the directory buttons hidden.  This would solve the problem in 90%
of the cases.  I would imagine that it is just a matter of changing some
files on nirvana, but I could be way off on this (please correct me if I
am.)

My experience with NetScape 3.0 win95 / Internet Explorer 3.0 win95:

Having just purchased a zip drive and returned to school from summer
vacation, I was anxious to download all of the newest "toys."  When I 
connected from home over a slirp'ed ppp connection on a 14.4K modem, I
couldn't believe the performance.  Slow isn't a proper adjective to
describe it.  Certain graphic files that are 8K, yes 8K, refuse to / take
a very long time to download from mole.  This was true with both
browsers.  They've both been trashed, or 'em, recycled.
