Collapsed Frames In 17.0.7.

Hello,
I'm presently having a lot of problems with the 17.0.7 version of TenFourFox. The page will come up normally, then the page collapses in on itself presenting raw data from the page. I had this problem a few versions ago and it went away with newer versions. Then, after the latest download, it has returned. It appears to be a bad bug. A file utilizing Mac's Grab program has been attached.

I am using Mac OS X v. 10.4.11 with an 800 Mhz PowerPC G4 eMac.

Any ideas? Many thanks.

    This isn't a bug, necessarily -- this is a failure of the browser to grab the style sheet (or one of the component style sheets), which forces it to fall back on the raw page structure. Anything can cause that, including poor network, server issues or an interfering add-on. If you notice this happening on a lot of sites, I'd look at local causes.
