The Mac version of Firefox sucks. It crashes more than any other software I use.

Really, I've found it much more stable than Safari. Granted, there's also Camino, but I haven't used that in ages, and I won't pay for OmniWeb.

i think i like firefox better than safari, but that might be because i'm using 1.2.3 on a 400 MHz G3 with 256MB of ram.

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...

No having 12 tabs open in firefox is not a sin. I have had browser windows with
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).

ok, i have a mac problem.

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?

oh, iand i thought animal might find this interesting:

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.

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.

any idea how much space it would need for that? iirc we got rid of most of the applications.

nad - why do you need to upgrade from 10.3.5 to 10.3.9?

i need it for a driver.

we freed up 4 gigs, but still no luck.

Safari doesn't do that. It downloads the html(etc.) page as text
only. I know, I know... I'm preaching to the chior here;

It does if you save a page as a webarchive.

Thanks Haroon:

My choices in 10.3.9 are -

Web Page, complete

Web Page, HTML only

Text Files

All Files

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)

I'm not sure how much space it would need, but I would think that's OK - the 10.3.7 Combo update is under 100 MB. I'd try running Disk Utility and check the drive for issues, and repair permissions - it could be that the updater can't write to whatever location it uses for temporary space.

we have 2 lan to gpib gateways. no rational reason why so far as i can tell. something to do with all those extra ethernet cards lying around?

(and the lan to gpib gateways actually need the same goddamn driver as the pci card)
