The Mac version of Firefox sucks. It crashes more than any other software I use.
I beg to differ! I also have a copy of Opera, but I've never even fired that one up. Hmm.. maybe
one day when curiosity gets the better of me... then again, maybe not...
300 plus tabs open on them (I know this because thats how many tabs firefox
asked me if I wanted to close (had to restart the browser to install some
extension or other)). The only problem has been memory consumption (that many
pages open will use some memory).
we need to upgrade from 10.3.5 to 10.3.9 and the upgrade says the drive doesn't "meet the requirements" for the update. we thought it was a space thing, but that doesn't seem to be the case. there's 2.7GB free on a 8.5GB drive. any ideas on what the problem could be?
We do not currently have plans to create a driver for Intel-based
Macs. There has just not been enough interest in GPIB on Mac OS X to
warrant creating a driver at this time.
GPIB & Serial
I'm going out on a limb here, and I'm certainly not the "Mac Pro", But I think the installer wants to
relocate all the files to another area of the drive and then install istself and replace the existing files as needed.
Then it frees up the temp. used disk space. Thus the reason for more than 2.7 gigs of free space. I'm probably
wrong on this, so best to wait for a post from a more experienced Mac user. Anyways, I think you'll get it to work eventually.
And if I am wrong and somebody corrects me, then I learned something.
nad - why do you need to upgrade from 10.3.5 to 10.3.9?
we freed up 4 gigs, but still no luck.

Safari doesn't do that. It downloads the html(etc.) page as textIt does if you save a page as a webarchive.
only. I know, I know... I'm preaching to the chior here;
My choices in 10.3.9 are -
Web Page, complete
Web Page, HTML only
None of which save graphics and images. Maybe Tiger has the "web archive" save option.
Nonetheless, I still like Firefox better. It's simply better, and it took me a good long while to change.
Ok. I take that back. Choosing "all files" in the save function retains most of the images.
But the page is all screwed up. It's like the CSS was tossed right out the window. (just checked it out of curiosity fyi)
