Hello from Berlin

It runs slowly on My G5 Quad when i have opened more than 5 windows.
And (the bigger problem) some adsites open a dialog in the middle of the window that ask me, want to leave or to stay on this side. When this dialog has open the browser is dead. You can click where ever you want or press enter, the browser is like frozen.

Please can you help me. Thank you, Mat.

    Hello Mat, general 'slowness' is hard to troubleshoot. I use 20 tabs or more regularly on my PowerBook G4 and don't find TFF too slow to work with. It all depends on the websites you use.

    Your second problem is something I have experienced as well occasionally, but I don't have a solution to it except force-quitting the browser, or disabling JavaScript for that domain. It sometimes happens on Facebook when I want to close a tab or navigate away from a page with unsent messages or posts. Usually I can click "leave page" or "stay on page", but sometimes none of the buttons on the overlay is clickable. I haven't found a way to reproduce it yet.
