I have a G5 iMac OS 10.5.8 and have loaded the latest version of TenFourFox. Neither previous version nor the latest will quit without using Forced quit.

Even worst, neither the earlier version (which used to work fine) nor the new version with open any internet site. It just keeps saying “connecting,” but nothing happens.

I have trashed the cache and profile.

    Do other browsers on your machine function?

    No. Firefox (which I deleted) stopped working awhile ago which is why I started using TenFourFox.  Safari wasn’t working when Apple stopped supporting it.
    it’s bizarre that TenFourFox ver. 12 worked great for awhile.

    No. None of the browser I used to use i.e. Safari and Firefox work anymore.

    First, check your clock is correct and that the correct connection type is seen in System Preferences (Wifi, Ethernet, etc.)

    If that looks fine, please open a Terminal window (it's in Utilities, Terminal) and type this command:

    dig floodgap.com

    What do you see? Do you get an answer? What do you see with this command:

    ifconfig

    You're sure dig floodgap.com gave absolutely no output? If that's the case, there's something much more wrong with your computer which is probably more than we can deal with here.

    A clue could be the ifconfig output. Only one of your network connections appears to be configured. Which are you set to in Network Preferences?
