If you find one, could you let me know...?

Totally agree. Netscape under linux is complete crud. Relative to
all the other browsers out there for linux, it's pretty feature
complete and stable, but compared to browsers for windows it sucks,
I have a beta of opera for linux running atm - it's a beautiful browser
to look at and use, but it crashes more often than it should and leaks
memory. Maybe check it out? I'm sure if a final version of opera ever
comes out for linux, I'll be ditching netscape for good...
