Hi,

I'm a graphic designer registered with a popular design contest website. To browse new contests you click on browse. I never had issues browsing until a few weeks ago. It happens intermittently(one day it works the next it doesn't) When I click on the Browse button it brings up the browse window and then Safari quits and I get this message "The application Safari has quit unexpectedly." A few months ago they changed their browsing section on the site and made it more extensive with filters for finding contests in specific industries etc. Any help with this is greatly appreciated!

Thanks, micnickel


PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    If the information in your profile is accurate, then you're using a browser that's years out of date and will be incompatible with many current sites.

    Linc,

    Thanks much for the response. I just had the same experience on another Mac. That one is using OS10.6.4 and it quit as well. Time to upgrade but do you know the most current OS that can be used with a Powermac? I purchased my G5 new a couple months before they introduced the Intel models.

    Thanks, micnickel

    The newest OS a PPC Mac can run is 10.5, but you may have trouble finding a copy. Try Apple phone sales first. Avoid eBay. You need a retail DVD with a leopard silkscreened on it, not a gray OEM disc.

     

    The problem with your other Mac isn't necessarily the same. I suggest you start another thread to address it, if you can't find a solution by searching the site.

    What bugs me is that it doesn't do it all the time. If it's the fact that I'm using Tiger then why does it work sometimes with Tiger and other times quit?

    I don't know. Your OS version is too old for me to work with. I think there's a version of Firefox that will run on your system. It's called "Ten Four Fox" or something like that. Try it.
