click on the Apple in the top left corner of your screen. Choose
"About This Mac…" A window will pop up telling you the amount
of memory installed, the processor type (G3, G4, G5), among others.
Click on "More Info…", then "ATA" to see how much disk space
you have available (also, any Finder window will show free disk
space in its bottom line).
If you have a G4 and need further help determining which type of
G4 you have, just ask.

It says 2 GHz IntelCore 2 Duo, Model: Optiaro DVDRW AD-5630A,
revision 1AHM. Then under "memory" it says 1GB 667 MHz DDR2 SD
RAM. I don't know what all that means so my next question is, can I
install 10.4Fx and which processor do I have?
There's two kinds of Macs. The older ones run with PPC
processors (G3/G4/G5), and the newers ones (like yours) run with
Intel processors. TenFourFox is intended for PPC Macs. The "real"
Firefox can run on your Mac, only your Mac OS X version is a little
old. Now what can you do?

thank you. You've been very helpful. I ordered Snow Leopard on line
and it will be delivered in about a week. After I install that, I
will come back to you to update Firefox. You have provided a good
service to me for many years and I'm glad I will be able to stay with
Firefox. I wish everyone there a Happy Easter and Passover.
Solomon, I'n not sure how I can help you. Is this problem
- TenFourFox, i.e. playing videos in the browser, - or to QuickTime
not being able to play some videos, - or to your G4 being too slow
to play some videos?

that's amazing because the Apple store told me I'd need to buy
something that they didn't sell in order to add memory to upgrade.
I'll have to find another store in the area to help me. I believe I
did a while back; now I just have to remember their name! TY, Chris.
Yes, you will probably have to resort to eBay or an independent computer shop to get memory for your Macbook. The 10.6 install DVD is still sold by Apple: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573Z/A/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard Before investing money, please make sure you really have an Intel Mac. Click the Apple Menu top left on your screen and select "About this Mac…". It will tell you which processor you have (Intel or PowerPC).
I have the latest version of TenFourFox running on my G5.
Recently I have had problems with the site http://www.runtimedna.com. I think they may have changed some of their coding recently - clicking on items (such as "cart" no longer works, and some pages do not display correctly. I also have the last version of Safari for OSX 10.4.11 and it exhibits the same problems.The other sites I use are still running correctly.
Could you have at look at their site and see if there's anything you can do?
Shaun, the issue you are having is different from the other
users in this thread. I am able to see the Cart button and click on
items on that site, so I assume the site is functioning normally (I
don't have a login and did not actually purchase items, however --
I can't help you in that case). If this is not the problem you are
experiencing, please open a new support ticket instead of appending
to this one.
I think the problem is that the webpage coding is updated and changed
- in effect leaving my version of Firefox and Safari behind.
I have checked with others and the site behaves correctly on newer
The headings disappear and the cart button can be seen but not
clicked; on leaving a page other images (and the heading) appear
I have (as far as I can tell) downloaded TenFourFox, but I'm getting this message: If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that TenFourFox is permitted to access the Web.
How do I give TenFourFox permission to access the Web?
