Facebook Mobile and Gecko-based web-browser on Mac OS 9

Hi everyone! I was chatting with my girlfriend on my iBook G3, while suddenly I had an encryption error; it's as if Facebook changed its encryption parameters a few hours ago! I haven't tried with my other OS 9 machines, but do you have similar problem? I can't connect to fb anymore with Classila or Netscape 7.02.

thanks for you feedback!

That's not likely to be fixable. OS9 is so limited in TLS. Classilla is effectively dead now. If you install Tiger (making sure to also install Shadow Killer - to make it tolerable to use), you might be able to use the new TenFourFox, but it's likely to be dead-dog slow.

In the end I guess I had a problem with my Wifi router haha it works again!
But will it last? Anyway I had Tiger on my iBook G3 but it was a pain to do anything else than writing or reading PDF even though it was heavily optimized. But with OS 9 (even tough I still got the orginial harddrive in it, and not upgraded it yet to a SSD) it really flys; and most important is useable for most tasks. And Classilla works for pretty much anything that has a "mobile optimized" or "light" mode for its website.
