When I download and open TenFourFox, Before I can attempt to drag it to my applications folder, i get a message from google reading:
404. That's an error.
The requested URL /ig?hi=en was not found on this server. That's all we know.
http://www.google.ca/ig?hl=en

What can I do to be able to use TenFourFox?

Thanks for a reply.

    Hello Burton, I don't really understand the issue. The steps should be
    1) download the browser (.zip file)
    2) unzip
    3) move the resulting TenfourfoXXX.app to the Applications folder
    4) *then* start the browser and go to a website, e.g. Google.ca
    Do you still get the error if you proceed in this order?

    why would you get an error from google (in a browser) when you are
    "attempting to drag to applications folder" which is a system operation?
    Doesn't make sense.
    What system / hardware are you using?

    http://www.google.ca/ig is the URL for iGoogle.
    The fact that it gives a 404 error is not surprising -
    iGoogle was discontinued on November 1, 2013.

    So consider reseting your homepage.
