Strange behavior in Firefox and Wordpress

I just learned of TenFourFox, and learned a lot reading the info, including all about not being able to upgrade from the 'old version of Firefox' on my IMac G5. For awhile, perhaps since Firefox 3.6 has been outdated, my email and other online features have some glitches. I am also working with WordPress, which as you probably know, rather than an app on my hard-drive, is on a web server. I'm experiencing some glitches there too, e.g. text in drop menus dancing around and I cannot click on it. Might these WordPress issues also be due to my browser being unsupported? Might running 104Fx alleviate these issues? Thank you so much for stepping in for us non-programmers!

    Follow up question: Ten4fx does not support plug-ins. Does this include any plug-in I would use within WordPress?

    Given the age of Firefox 3.6, it is quite likely that there are some incompatibilities between it and recent versions of WordPress. I can't guarantee TenFourFox will solve your problem, but I can say that 3.6's age is undoubtedly the cause. There are many WordPress bloggers who do use TenFourFox.

    To your second question, the plugin runs in WordPress, not TenFourFox. So they will work fine, since it is a component of the server, not the browser.

    Great. Helpful response. It makes me think TenFourFox will be a definite improvement, and allow me to use WordPress. Thank you again.
