Dear Sir,

I use a G4 Imac 10.4.11 Java ver 9.X

I experienced difficulty in displaying arabic letters, the font is there but the letters are not connected.
I have similar problems in the mobile android system, it was mainly due to framework problems

Thank you for adding arabic support and promote your product to the middle-east.

    TenFourFox does not support AAT-encoded fonts requiring specific ligatures or glyph substitution. This affects Arabic, Indic and certain other scripts. There is no way to fix this at this time. See and the TenFourFox FAQ.

    If you use an Arabic OpenType or WOFF font, however, it will work fine.

    Thank you the Arabic problem was resolved thanks to you

    I have another problem when trying to install an applet in Google Drive to enable folders upload. Here the message I get although I have checked that java is enabled in TenFourFox preferences.

    "Enable folder uploadYour browser doesn't support the uploading of entire folders.We recommend that you use the Chrome browser web instead, which supports folder upload.Alternatively, you can install a Java-based Folder Upload applet in your browser.Your browser does not currently have Java enabled. If you wish to install the Folder Upload applet, you must enable Java first."Learn more

    This one we won't be able to fix. TenFourFox does not support Java at all, and in fact I strongly recommend disabling it entirely; it is no longer safe to use on Power Macs under any circumstances. You might look into a Chromebook or some inexpensive device to handle this, and pass data to it by SD card.
