i'd use TenFourFox since 10.0.3. and like it more than Safari 5!

then after a while i did the last update from TenFourFox7450-17.0.9 => up to 7450-17.0.11
it brought such a badly slowing - the "beachball" ist running always again and again for sometimes up to 5-6 seconds before any else interaction is possible again.

same as above happened with TenFourFox 24. on my G5 (2,3 / 6,5GB Ram). first itself worked fine, the next 2 updates did slow it down too ...

may that be it because there are a few = 6 addons workin like Ghostery, ABE, DNT, https-everywhere, greasemonkey? or does there come such enourmos load more with these updates and so they will be so hungry for most of installed memory but although slow it such down ...?

it will look to get unusable for me if it will go further on like that ;-(

anyway big thank for your work at all!
great to have modern browsing possibilities on old macs.

    All of those are pretty big-league add-ons, that's true. However, I have a number of addons installed in my 24 install, and it seems to work pretty well. You might look for lighter versions, or reduce the number of Greasemonkey scripts you're running.
