When I use ten four fox to log into the NYTimes web site, where I have an account, it goes unstable and crashes. It has been doing this on the last two update versions. Before then I could get on the site OK with older versions. I continue to get to the NYTimes web site OK with Safari.

Can this be fixed, please? thanks.

    I need a URL to test with. (Do not post your login and password.) It should be something that can be accessed by someone who does not have a NYTimes membership.

    Hi Cameron --

    Well, just before I sent you that message about the problem, I had installed Ten Four Fox 38.4.0 and trashed the earlier version. And guess what -- no more NYTimes web site problem! Also -- I don't have any earlier version to provoke problems.

    Whatever you did to get to the latest version apparently solved my issues.

    Muchas gracias.

    We did fix a couple of known crashes in 38.4.0 and it is quite probable one of those we fixed was also affecting you. Glad it works now.

    Moi aussi!

    So, thank you again.

    The only other problem I have with 10-4-Fox is speed -- its startup pokes along a bit and then once it's up it runs pretty well. I'm putting that down to internet traffic logjams.

    Actually, this is probably more due to trying to load the XUL superlibrary. It's a very large file which generally needs to be read in drip by drip until most of it is in memory.

    Thank you for keeping in touch, although I am somewhat perplexed by this followup.

    When I click on the indicated link form female.faust I get this message:

    Please try again later.
