Koqueror and FF don't behave as expected under Linux

P: n/a
The web pages that I've been building under Windows and which validate
and display without error or problem with IE, MZ and FF are problematic
under Linux - Fedora Core 3.

I have a 512K ADSL connection and with FF the pages display promptly but
if I click a link MZ closes all open windows without warning (it
crashes.) With Koqueror the pages each take about 5 minutes to display
though typically a page is under 10K.

How do I start resolving the problem(s)?

I'm sorry but the work is published on a company Intranet (and I'm under
NDA). I'm a newbie with Linux and I was kind of hoping that maybe there
are common pitfalls that newbies fall into that could be pointed out.

All right. Come back when you're able to provide enough information to
make yourself helpable.

Is it only those pages, or are you having trouble with other sites as
well?

If it's only those pages, there's not much we can do without a URL.

Some of us have general knowledge that can be helpful to other people
having a general problem without our having to see their specific pages.
For example, if someone says, "My boxes overlap in IE5 but they work
fine in IE6 and Firefox", many of us can readily suggest that they look
into the IE5 box model bug and direct them to work-arounds that others
have come up with. If someone says, "I'm using max-width in CSS but IE
is ignoring it. Did I do something wrong?" I know, without looking at
any code, that the answer is "IE doesn't support max-width, period."
Granted, specific troubleshooting requires a look at the code, and many
people do ask questions that are clearly unsolvable without more
specific information, but this person made some clear general
observations about pages that work in *several* browsers under Windows
but not under Linux, and there's no reason in the world why he shouldn't
try to find out, as a first attempt to solve the problem, whether there
are some known general issues that create problems in Linux-based
browsers, that don't occur under Windows.
