i'm running firefox 3.6 on my ppc mac g4 desktop. i just replaced the system hard drive due to recommendations on this forum because firefox and other apps kept crashing. well, here i am w/a brand new essentially empty drive crashing away again. what gives?

camino, firefox, and safari all crash within seconds of opening. i'm wondering if this is a flash issue. my flash version is 9,0,246,0. i think i need 10,3,181,35 but i can't seem to find a download for it. just when i think i've found it, it's a dead link. btw, my os is 10.4.11

you would actually need Flash 10.1

Try TenFourFox. It is optimized for PowerPC, and I've noticed its really fast.

yes i do. if only i could find it now. thought it would be simple. not so much. somebody posted a link for old mac apps. i downloaded the version i needed, but when i opened the folder on my desktop there were a bunch of zip files with gibberish titles. i have NO idea what to do with these things. and i thought this would be an easy fix...
