I am on am iMac G5, using it only for my old quicken app. Every month I need to email myself a pdf transaction summary and have been able to do that up until a few months ago when gmail/google stopped loading.

Today I went looking for a solution (on my iPad...) and found tenfourfox and was so excited. But... when I click on the link for the G5 processors, I get the following error message below. Is there another way to download/install tenfourfox for iMac G5?

Secure Connection Failed

    This message usually means the browser you're using to download TenFourFox has encryption that is too old (SourceForge, which hosts our downloads, requires downloads to be done over a secure connection to ensure there is no tampering). What browser(s) did you try to download it with?

    One more update...
    I have been trying this download on an old version of Firefox 3.5.1
    I just now thought to try on Safari (4.1.3) and the link works from there. Download successful.

    Excellent. Firefox 3.6 should also work, but glad you were able to grab the download.
