I'd start looking for network configurations, kernel extensions or applications that would load at normal startup, but don't when booting into safe mode. There must be something preventing network access for TFF or even all programs. Do other web browsers work in normal boot?

Hi Chris, Thank you for your input. Unfortunately, I’m not very tech savvy and don’t really understand your first sentence. Is there some way or a program that can check the network configurations you mentioned?
I don’t have any other browsers that work. Until they stopped being supported, I used FireFox and Safari. As you know these don’t work on a G5 iMac anymore. This is why I was so excited that TFF might work.

I know it's all a bit technical. I'll try to break this up into smaller steps.
First we need to figure out whether this is a problem TenFourFox has exclusively (i.e. relevant for this forum), or if it's a problem with your Mac OS X installation (i.e. not so relevant for this forum).
Step 1: With your Mac booted normally, please open Safari and go to google.com. Does the search page load as it should?

It doesn’t load and gave me this message. The application Safari quit unexpectedly. The problem may have been
caused by the RegexKit plug-in.
Did you get these attachments I sent you with the Safari and TTF activity list?

Given the various problems you described it looks like there's something seriously wrong with your Mac OS X installation, or even your hardware. Things I'd try next:
• Apple Hardware Test (on the install CDs/DVDs that came with the Mac origininally); if OK:
• Create a new OS X user (System Preferences>Accounts>click the + at the bottom left; if the problem persists there -> re-install the OS
