The Netscape Toolbar is the most obvious new feature at first glance. I personally find it to be of marginal use, although I think it's an interesting feature and I am extremely glad that this Netscape accessory is finally available for the browser of the same name!
My Netscape 7.2 Toolbar didnâ€™t work right (missing options and selected options disappearing from toolbar) so I uninstalled it from the Netscape toolbar's drop-down list, then reinstalled it by opening the "Netscape Setup" file netscapetoolbar_distro.XPI
in the browser, which fixed the problem. I had to do the same thing in my other Netscape 7.2 profile . An uninstall/reinstall of the netscapetoolbar_distro.XPI fixed it there, too.
Might just be a coincidence but the "Subject or Sender contains..." search function in Mail/Newsgroups wasn't working either. After I uninstalled and reinstalled the Netscape toolbar, and closed/reopened Netscape, the "Subject or Sender contains..." message search feature also was fixed.

I was disappointed that Netscape was the only search engine provided in the integrated Search facility by default; a quick visit to Mycroft
at mozdev.org allowed me to restore Google and other engines to the list.
All I had to do was copy the searchplugins (src and gif files for Jeeves, google and dmoz) from my Mozilla 1.7.2 C:\Program Files\Mozilla1.72\mozilla\searchplugins folder to my Netscape 7.2 C:\Program Files\Netscape\Netscape7.2\searchplugins folder. Now I have those additional search engines to choose from in my Navigator | Internet Search preferences, in addition to Netscape search
