HELP! I downloaded latest version. I have a Powerbook G4 but a PowerPC one. The reason I use Camino instead of Safari is that Flash is no longer supported with Safari and it was the only way I could do online banking.
NOW when I go to my online banking, it's blank and all I see is the flash logo.
I thought this was going to support a Powerbook G4.
I guess I have to do an uninstall and go back.
Sigh.

Sorry if my question is obvious, but is Flash enabled in Camino's Web preferences? This behavior usually happens when Flash is blocked.

You need to right click and enable Flash for your online banking site. By default Camino 2.1 on PPC blocks flash from loading, as the version of flash available to PPC users is out of date (reason for this was a security issue).

FYI, the blog post http://caminobrowser.org/blog/ announcing 2.1 release is dated September 29 -- don't know if this is a "slip of the pen" in hardcoding by the poster, or if there's a programming/scripting error somewhere in your blog generation process...

On topic... 2.1 looks and works great for me! Thanks again for the hard work! :)

Hi all, here's the reason I keep using Camino and no other browser: Because of this "appearance" option that let you choose the colours of your pages, especially the background colour. All thoses white pages having a bad effect on my eyes, I used to darken it a little and it had the double advantage of avoiding me a few headaches and be good for environment... (anyone knows Blackle.com ?) Now here's the reason this new version disappoints me a lot: this option has disappeared !
You can still change the settings, but the checkbox to activate it is no longer here... Tell me it's just a bug that will be fixed ! (I'm on a MacbookPro - OSX 10.5.8)
Thanx !

If you absolutely need those settings, you can still force them to be applied by setting browser.display.use_document_colors in about:config. However, see the very first comment in bug 592697.

Nope, that was a copy-pasto, so thanks for catching it ;)

Thanks, I do enable that every few weeks when staring at the screen too much really gets to me. So I didn't notice immediately that that feature had disappeared from the pref pane, but would have soon!

Thanks to everyone who made this new release happen. I think everyone here wants Camino to keep being a success!

Hi,

After upgrading I get this message:

"Java is not installed on your system. Please download the latest version of the Java Runtime Environment and return once it has been installed."

Of course I do have Java installed (works fine of FF and Safari) - and it is enabled in the Camino preferences also.

Any ideas before I try uninstalling / reverting etc etc.

Thanks

Clocked the solution on forums here: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2378357
