My G3 is a beige tower WITHOUT original USB ports. It has the max amount of RAM, but I have not upgraded the processor - 233 MHz. It has an aftermarket 40Gig HD added. It currently runs 10.2.8. It seems that I had no problems with Netscape until I did the upgrade to .8, but I can't remember exactly when or why the problems started. (I do remember bragging to my PC husband that my computer was not longer freezing up after the painful upgrade from 9 to 10.2.) My problem is that Netscape keeps croaking, but Safari will not operate with key pages I need to access, like my online banking. So I bought the 10.3 full install (so I could upgrade my Safari and/or Netscape), only to find out it wants original USB ports. I have aftermarket USB ports, but apparently that doesn't work. I disconnected my second HD in hopes that would do the trick, but it did not. I've read a couple of threads along this line, but haven't found any back doors/secret passages. 1. Does anyone know of a way I can "trick" X.3 into installing on this computer? 2. If not, how can I solve my problem with Netscape? It only croaks when I click the scroll bar to page down. It does not freeze the computer, but it seems that once it happens it will do it repeatedly until I leave it alone for a day or so. Rebooting does not seem to help. I don't know why it works better if I leave it alone - that sounds stupid to me, but there it is. Any and all advice is appreciated. However, I cannot afford a new Mac, much as I would love to buy a G5 or something. I don't even look at them anymore. I would like to just keep upgrading this Mac. Yes, I know it's an antique - I've even been laughed at by Apple techs. THanks!
