Do you Support a Browser for OS 10.3.9?

I've recently written about Firefox 2.0.0.20, in which the Save button doesn't always work. I can't use FF 3.
I tried Safari, but it quits unexpectedly.
I tried Micro Explorer 5.2.3 for Mac. Strange - the menu that begins Home...MyAccount.... is about an inch lower than it should be, and hides some other menu options; the right mouse button doesn't do anything, which makes it virtually unusable.

What do you positively support for Mac OS 10.3.9?
Thanks. BB

Clover,

I am a Mac user and am on OS 10.5.6 right now (I started out where you are). I have been using my Mac and the Griddler site for a year now. I use Safari. The only problem I still have is with triddlers. The font for the numbers is too big, and I can't solve large puzzles as a result. I have found no work around for this.

I had a problem with the iGridd Applet early on that was solved by emptying the cache, deleting and then reloading the applet. Other than that, I have had no problems with the iGridd Applet so if you are not an applet user, perhaps you should subscribe. It is a very small annual amount for a good product. It is true that you still have to return to the website to get into the forum, but that is a small price to pay.

I don't know why you are experiencing problems with the website as we seem to have identical systems and browsers, and my system works fine. I will check with my husband this evening to see if he has any suggestions as he's a real pro. May take two weeks to get back to you as you caught me the night before my vacation.

Hi Bug
Welcome back from vacation.
My Safari is 1.3.2 which is as high as I can go on 10.3.9. I don't know why it quits unexpectedly.
Firefox works okay. Often it takes 30 seconds or more to get to another page. That must be Griddlers slowness, as I have a low speed DSL.
I do have a subscription. I don't care for triddlers.
I haven't tried iGrid or can't remember if I did and it didn't work. I'll try again with your advice.

The major problem I have with Firefox is that if I want to save a puzzle, the little Save window does not always complete its task. It stays forever, it won't quit when I click its red button, and I have to force quit FF and start over. I now make a picture of my puzzle as a precaution.

Thanks for your help. Bruce B

Bruce,

I did check with my techie husband. His only comments were: Have you applied all the available patches for OS 10.3 that you can? Are you on a Mac that you can upgrade to a newer release of OS 10? Probably the issue is that Apple isn't continuing to provide patches for your version of the operating system. Soooo sorry.
