I'm running a g5 without an intel processor. I'm running os system 10.5. Since mozilla is no longer supporting the system, I just installed 10 4 fox. Is there anyway to get flash to work?

    Hello Carolyn,

    Flash is a plugin, and plugins are no longer supported in TenFourFox. Since most plugins are now unsupported by their vendors on the PowerPC platform and don't receive updates anymore, they're a security risk, and they don't work right anymore in many circumstances, causing crashes and other unexpected behavior. Therefore, they're switched off by default.

    Since the iPad/iPhone don't support Flash either, more and more websites offer a Flash free alternative. You can use YouTube's WebM/HTML5 feature to watch movies (http://www.youtube.com/html5).

    If you absolutely require Flash and other plugins, you can use Camino, OmniWeb or Safari. You can also switch plugins back on in TenFourFox (see http://code.google.com/p/tenfourfox/wiki/PluginsNoLongerSupported). Note that this mode is unsupported.
