Didn't turn JS off, I looked for that ability in preferences but
couldn't find it. I haven't opened about:config nor changed
anything that way.
The slower problem: all I did was upgrade from 17 and now it's
slower. Didn't change a thing. Slower in all website browsing and
typing functions and especially if I have more than 1 or 2 tabs
CPU usage doesn't seem to get much higher than around 60%, often
lower. RSize right now is 659MB and VSize is 2.45GB and that's with
2 tabs open. I don't know how to interpret that data but thought it
might be useful.
I can only recommend attempting a profile reset to see if there
is a left-over setting or a bad add-on causing this; I don't have
start, it must have been disabled somehow either by an add-on like
NoScript or a setting you may have forgotten about. (The ability to
If you want to try this, go to "How to reset your profile" at
the lower right.
If I had turned JS off in Firefox (3.6.2) would that preference
have migrated over to 10.4F? If so, rather than completely
resetting my profile, I could start FF, change that preference,
close it then start 10.4F and it should carry back over??
You could, but that assumes that one particular setting is the
problem, and you've apparently got other things going on as well.
(If you wanted to try that, I'd use 17 to do it, not 3.6 -- 3.6 has
a very good chance of corrupting your profile now.) The slowdown
was exactly why I suggested a profile reset instead of a
Among other systems I personally use TenFourFox on a 1GHz iMac
G4 daily and I don't notice it being particularly slow, especially
considering the machine is over a decade old.
Your Firefox profile is your TenFourFox profile -- by
design, TenFourFox is designed to look to the Mac like Firefox so
that bookmarks and other settings transfer over. I don't support
switching back and forth between Firefox and TenFourFox because
Firefox 3.6 has an excellent chance of not understanding the
profile format of later versions, and possibly damaging it. By
using TenFourFox, it's changed already; it does attempt to upgrade
The document explains which things are removed and which are
not. Read it carefully before you start since the process is
Yes. You probably should delete the Library/Application
Support/Firefox folder completely in that case and let Firefox 3.6
recreate it; you should export your bookmarks before, but I'm not
100% sure Firefox 3.6 will read an export from a later version.

I did use Camino for a long time but FF was so much better
particularly in terms of ad blockers that I switched. The different
FF ad blockers are completely awesome (not just AdBlock Plus) and
I'm sure glad they work with 10.4F otherwise I wouldn't be using
it. I never see a single ad on any site I go to including the
inline underline ads.
If have got the same problem, is there any solution yet? All
JavaScipt sites wont work... It happens after I ve used 10.4 Fox
for some two or three weeks without any change of settings, is the
no way to reinstall JS or switch it on somewhere?
