I am using NetObjects Fusion 3.0 with OS 9 and no problems (well, except those always present in the program).

I do a clean install OS9 and NOF on a HFS disk and it FREEZES.
I format the disk and do a clean install NOF (using another startupdisk) then I install OS9 and restart. It RUNS!
I restart and guess what? IT FREEZES AGAIN!

This is driving me 'uckin'nuts!!

Please help me!

I have been trying to get NetObjects to work during the entire OS 9 beta period. It freezes on launch.

Since someone has it working, I would love to see an Apple System Profiler report on that system.

I just use NOF 3.0 in an 8.6 partition.

I have been able to use NOF 3.0 on my 8500 throughout the beta test period.
http://www.buffalo.edu/~benesch/os9.html

This page contains a screen shot of the NetObject Splash Screen along with the OS 9 splash screen. I also listed my System Profiler Report. I have an 8500 with a G3 updgrade card, 144 megs RAM with VM disabled (it works with VM on, too).

I have tried NOF 3 on two Macs with OS9 (G3-400-320megs and an Imac 333-96 megs). Both crashed big time.

I run on a PB 3400 with MacOS9 and was able to launch NOF 3.0 without any problem.
My OS9 installation was not a clean install, just an update.

Wahahahaha, after placing this on the Netobjects newsgroup:

"Still no official word from NetObjects?
There's no word anywhere on netobjects.com of problems using NOF 3 on a G3 with MacOS 9 installed on it. I really hope that wanna-be customers get the demo first....
A VERY! frustrated ex-NOF-Mac user.
ps. Freeway really is all that, it's easy to use and hasn't crashed a single
time since I got it last week."

I've been banned from it, whenever I try to read something I get a "502 Permission denied" error. Very childish for a company that say's :
services that ensure your company realizes maximum value from your NetObjects investment.

Looks like all the Netobject discussion groups are down.

I installed 9.0 on my old 604 Power Tower, NOF works fine, (slowly, but fine). I'm tempted to load it on my G3 B/W as well but as one might understand, I'm a bit apprehensive about it. It seems that different people have had different experiences w/ NOF and 9.0. Maybe its a hardware/OS combo? It's too bad that the folks at NOF have chosen to ignore their Mac users. They might be able to help us here.

Oh man Im so ticked off I got banned from the NOF 3 Mac disscusion news group! All I did was post a question "why is NetObjects displaying an ad from Apple for OS 9 when they are being so rude to Mac users and all the problems people are having with their software with OS 9"? And wondered if Apple has any clue to they way NOF is treating their customers. What a bunch of jerks they yanks us around not saying if they are even working on an update and then treat their users this way. They removed my post and banned me from the newsgroup nice way to treat their users.

The message boards at NOF are not shutting people out. Their message server is probably down. I sent them email on this. It's been on and off for the last couple of days.
I spent all day today at the Apple, Santa Moncia in a GoLive web seminar. An associate and I decided we had better learn another app for site development. So there we were, with an assortment of other folk.
Yep, NOF is a heck of a lot easier and faster. There are also some great features in GoLive, but its hard to give up some of the things we take for granted with NOF. Golive requires a lot more work to begin with. I've been using NOF since 1.0, so I'm pretty well entrenched.
Because of this, I am soooo honked at NOF I can't see straight. I've not recommended the app to anyone for over a year, Mac or PC based. When anyone asks me, I say GoLive or Dreamweaver. Why they are making themselves into a one platform app is beyond me.

Im having the same problem so I emailed their technical support and this is what they told me: (I have not tried it yet)
Hello Martin,

Thank you for submitting your inquiry into NetObjects technical support.

As the version 9 of the MacOS was just recently released, we were unable to
test our product against this vesion of the Operating System. A technical
support colleague of mine was able to get NetObjects Fusion 3.0 to work on a
G3 machine with OS9. You may want to try to create another extensions
profile and see if there is an extension conflict. Start with the following
extensions and work from there:
These are the six extensions that NetObjects Fusion 3.0 requires to run:

AppleScriptLib - 28,489 bytes, version 1.2.2
Color Picker - 498,479 bytes, version 2.1.1
Navigation - 907,672 bytes, version 1.0
QuickTime(tm) - 2,790,812 bytes, version 3.0
QuickTime(tm) PowerPlug - 2,526,613 bytes, version 3.0
QuickTime(tm) VR - 589,621 bytes, version 2.1

In addition, we have found that the following four extensions have caused
problems with at least one other customer in running NetObjects Fusion 3.0
(sorry that we don't have version information on all these extensions):

Iomega driver version 6.0.1
MacComCenter Faxing extensions
QuicKeys from CE Software
Clockwork Reminder

The other thing that we have found can cause problems for NetObjects Fusion
on any type of Mac, is if 'File Sharing' is enabled. If you turn it off,
NetObjects Fusion seems to be happier.

Also, make sure that virtual memory is turned on and that you have a
reasonable amount of memory allocated to it, such as 20 MB or more. The
more virtual memory is available, the more content NetObjects Fusion is..

You might also try trashing the Preferences files for NetObjects Fusion 3.0
and Navigation Services. In addition, we recommend that you allocate at
least 40 MB of memory to the NetObjects Fusion 3.0 application.

I hope this helps. If none of these workarounds help, please let me know so
that I can assist you as soon as possible.

Regards,
Jayson H.

Hey all,

Here is the solution to your problem. You need to download and install the PACE Anti-Piracy USB Floppy Enabler. Don't ask me why, but it takes care of the problem.

The URL for the file is: http://www.paceap.com/hmdlusbdriver.html.

-Hope this helps!
