Thanks for your kind & timely assistance...I appreciate it.
Here's where I am: after the Archive Utility has Unarchived the TenFourFox download ( 7450-FPR16.1.app ) , an icon appears in Applications...so far, so good!
My challenge is to learn how to transfer this new material onto my Desktop!
I've put the ( original version of ) TenFourFox icon in my Dock, and I can open TenFourFox every time...easy!
What I seem unable to accomplish, is to transfer the current TenFourFox onto the Dock.
So: my simple challenge remains: once my new Download is unarchived, how do I proceed...step-by-step, to get it to the Dock?
( having said all this, it IS a bit embarrassing to admit that I cannot do this...you'd think that anyone who is able to strip down an iBook G4 and successfully install a SSD he cloned, could do THIS, yet, it escapes me...! OUCH! )
Assuming the files are named the same, simply replacing the one in /Applications with the new one should be enough to update what's in your Dock. However, you should only do that after quitting the browser (don't do it with the browser running).

Thanks once again, Cameron: I was able to install the current version last night...pretty easy, once one knows the Routine!
Say: I have checked the Box @ 'Automatic Updates' for TenFourFox...am I correct to assume that every time an Update's available, all I have to do is leave your program up and running long enough for the Update to be recognised & installed?
Sort of a silly question, yes, but I thought it a good idea to confirm...I'm getting used to Apple, but it's a rather slow process...
I plan to try your TenFourFoxBox, too...looks pretty neat.
Once again: THANKS....your kind attentions mean a lot to me, and contribute meaningfully to the Apple experience.
If you choose 'automatically' or 'check for updates', TenFourFox will check for updates and notify you (it doesn't matter which of the two you choose). You will need to download and install updates manually either way since we don't have the server infrastructure in place to do this for you.

Thanks for your kind reply... I appreciate it.
I'm enjoying using my 12" iBook G4, and it's 14" counterpart, and TenFourFox is Absolutely Necessary for the process. I cloned the 12"'s 10.4.11 OS, and slipped it into two 64GB mSATA SSD's...one for each of them...although the SSD seems to speed things up a bit, without TenFourFox, they'd still be unable to 'see' the World of 2019...!
Say: is there a site where I might donate a few $$ to TenFourFox? Along with quite a few other folks nowadays, I'm not yet in the market for a nice Porsche 911 (!), but I do have a few, discretionary dollars each month, and I know where I'd like to direct several of them!
