Up until recently, I was able to make my BOA transactions and visit Facebook using TenfourFox for my old Tiger Mac 10.4.
Help! Buying a new computer right now would not be good for me financially. Maybe I did something wrong when downloading 10.4fox. I dragged it into the applications folder and hoped for the best. Did I miss something?

    You didn't do anything wrong. I can't speak about BOA, but regarding Facebook:

    Right now you should be able to visit Facebook with the latest version of TenFourFox (please check for updates). If you can't, please advise. You should see a badge on top saying they won't support this browser soon (actually, they never did), this doesn't mean it'll stop working. It's just unsupported. You can also use https://mbasic.facebook.com for basic functionality.

    The story will change as soon Facebook starts to roll out its new, completely redesigned front end. We don't know when this will happen, and it won't happen simultaneously for all users and all countries. This could mean anything for TenFourFox, from 'works better and faster than before' to 'doesn't work at all'. We don't know yet.

    You may be able to get BoA to work by changing the user agent (see Using the TenFourFox preference pane).
