Follow up: Can you uninstall a security update?

Turns out there is an incompatibility in the OS 10.5.8/PPC G5/Flash Player 10.1 mix. The Adobe Flash Player website indicates that the PPC version works with up to OS 10.4. By selecting my OS version as 10.3, I was able to download Flash Player 9, which seems to work now. Adobe stated that Flash Player updates beyond 10.1 will not be compatible with PPC systems.

You do not require Flash to view (most) YouTube videos:

At that link, you find that you need the beta version of FireFox 4. I downloaded that version, but apparently it will not run on PPC. The application icon was greyed and had an overlay of the "prohibited" symbol (red circle with a slash). I did not try the iPad user agent trick.

I am not a fan of Flash for all of the reasons that have been mentioned in this forum and elsewhere, but without it many websites cannot be accessed or have a "diminished user experience". Try the Hyundai USA website without it. (We are in the car shopping mode.)

Thanks, this forum rocks!

Or Safari 4 or 5, both of which will run on 10.5 PPC. Then set YouTube's prefs to give you HTML5 videos where available.

Go for version 5, as you'll gain Extensions, and there's a very good Safari extension for Click-to-Flash (look for it on Apple's Extensions page, do NOT bother with the older plugin found elsewhere and made by someone else). Very easy to enable Flash on a case-by-case basis.

In addition to deckeda's suggestions, here's another trick that has worked well for me:
