You didn't really want to post that to MeFi, did you? Oops!

The latest versions of Firefox and Safari that can run on my Mac Intel G4 tower (OS X 10.4.11) keep crashing when I open more than one video in separate tabs or windows on YouTube or Hulu. The problem isn't consistent, but it does seem to happen when I have at least 7 or 8 tabs open at once. Can anyone help me solve this? [more inside]

authorware for mac osx 10.5 troubleshooting

Is there any way for me to successfully download Adobe's 'Macromedia Authorware' program to a Mac OSX 10.5 operating system? (Recently upgraded from 10.4.11....I think). I have tried several times, but when downloaded I click to open and end up with a text edit file. So not helpful to my school psychology experiments. I've heard there is an online version of this software, but when looking for it I keep getting taken to Adobe's download page over and over. Is there any way to simply downgrade and would this help? I am technologically clueless so the simplest terms possible would be very appreciated.
