Hello Marilyn, go to http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox/
and scroll down to the bottom of the page. "TenFourFox for G5
processors" ist the right download for your iMac. You can keep the
old Firefox application on your hard drive. TenFourFox uses the
same user profile as Firefox and will take over your bookmarks,
settings etc. Flash, however, as all plugins, is not supported with
TenFourFox. Since Adobe abandoned PPC Macs, there is no update for
Flash, no matter which browser you use. TenFourFox can play Youtube
videos that are encoded in WebM nativeley, without any plugins
Do you mean the question which browser is to be set as the
"default browser"? Most web browsers will ask this the first time
they run. The default browser opens automatically e.g. when
clicking on a link in your e-mail application or double clicking an
html file in the Finder. Otherwise, there's no difference. You can
switch the default browser manually: Apple has hidden this function
in the Safari preferences>General.

sorry to trouble you about this , but i am starting to really regret
having downloaded 10.4fx . my computer skills are only average and i
am quite lost at the moment. i need a real step-by-step guide to the
point where i can use youtube again.
i am also not able to open dr. weil’s videos which is a great
disappointment. it says 10.4x does not support it...video unavailable
when i tried to access the AdBlock , etc. that you suggested, it also
said that it did not support 10.4fx.
i joined 10.4fx to be able to hear videos. i could see them. now
with10.4 fx i cannot access them at all. they say that 10.4fx does not
support it. however, since this includes someone’s youtube video
comparing the visuals for 10.4x and safari with a G5, that defies logic.
also, i downloaded MacTubes and though it says that i have a 5.8 MB
application, if it is there i do not know how to access it. i am
only be able to access a blank playlist with a yellow light and the
manual in eng and japanese.
could this be because i put the following in the trash or is it ok to
empty the trash with the following in it?, or should i recoup one or
more ? should i also put adobe in the trash if it is no longer
thank you in advance for any help which you may be able to provide. i
followed the 10.4 instructions as best i could.
i already have perian, but do not know how to put it into quicktime.
Marilyn, Flash player is a plugin, and plugins are switched off
in TenFourFox, meaning it won't work.
To watch Youtube videos without Flash, 1) go to www.youtube.com/html5 and make
sure you're in the html5 trial. 2) Also read Youtube's hints about
html5 video on the same site. 2) Play your Youtube video.
If your video is only available in h.264 and still doesn't play
in TenFourFox, you can open it with MacTubes (in the MacTubes app,
go to "File>Open Video", then enter the video URL).
The 5.8 MB app is Mactubes. It should be in a folder
calld "MacTubes_v3.1.4". Put the application in your Applications
folder and double click it to start. If you're unsure, re-download
it from http://macapps.sakura.ne.jp/mactubes/index_en.html.
It comes as a zip file; double click that to uncompress.
If you get no audio at all, first make sure computer's audio
settings (volume) are correct, also the volume slider in Youtube
The things you listed in your trash are all installers, not the
actual Flash players, so it doesn't make a difference if you empty
the trash. To see which version of Flash is installed, open Safari
and in it's Help Menu, click "Installed Plug-ins". If there's a
video that requires Flash and has no html5 alternative, you'll need
to use Safari to watch it.
Perian is not directly involved with video playback on
TenFourFox. To install Perian, double click the Perian_1.2.3.dmg
you downloaded and then double click Perian.prefPane or have a look
at the readme file they provide.
