Java is a plugin, which is unsupported by TenFourFox and
disabled by default. If you're running TenFourFox with plugins
enabled, I would suggest to disable at least Java in the Add-ons
Manager (Tools>Add-ons>Plugins). Java is now a real security
risk, and it won't ever be updated for Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5 to
any secure state. In principal, this is true for all plugins. If
you're running into trouble because of plugins, you're on your
no need (or possibility) to update it yourself.

Three windows open at launch: 104fox, yahoo and java update window.

That's the Firefox Plugin Check. I don't know why it's loaded at
startup (maybe a saved session?), but anyway, it's telling you
correctly that Java has been disabled in Firefox/TenFourFox because
you have an old (therefore insecure) version installed. As I said,
there is no way to update Java on your computer to a version that's
Is this still related to the Java question? Anything Yahoo or
any website says about Java is irrelevant with TenFourFox because
a) it's disabled, and b) it can't be updated anymore on a PPC Mac
anyway. I use Yahoo with TenFourFox and I don't see messages about
"not secure site", so I'm not sure what you mean.
