i like this browser realy and do use it since version TenFourFox_7450_9.0
today i loaded the Update TenFourFox7450-17.0.7.app. and was confused that i couldn't get it workin'
while the app is declared as not compatible to my G4 / PPC Mac Os 10.5.8 (app icon with the stroke-trough). (had that only once earlier with the 17.0.3!)
downloaded again - Stuffit says: "The structure of the archive is damaged (Error #17540)"
hmm ...?

    Hello, Voxs, I've tested this exact G4 7450 download over the weekend on my PB G4/10.5, so I'm pretty sure it's okay.

    You can try two things:
    1) re-download the zip file. It's exactly 24,373,767 bytes (make sure it's downloaded completely).
    2) Use OS X's built-in unzip tool. Right-click and and choose "Open with > Archive Utility. Even though I've never heard that complaint about Stuffit, some third-party utilities can corrupt the application while unzipping.

    thank you really for your investigation of such unusual behavior as mine :-)
    now it did work well, by loading it down again with my 10.6 machine ...
    may be my G4 felt superheated as by the current temp.
