Hello! I have an old g4 powerbook titanium running tenfourfox and it's awesome! However, my newish model macbook that runs 10.5.7 is now out of date. No more chrome updates or foxfire. I was hoping a version of FenFourFox was available. Is it? I can't seem to find which one to download. Help! Thanks! Stephey

    (I assume by 10.5.7 you meant 10.7.5 in your report as well.)

    Thanks for the kind word. However, we don't support Intel systems because there are substantial differences and it's already a lot of work just supporting Power Macs on 10.4 and 10.5. (The browser runs under emulation on 10.6, though officially we don't support that either.) If someone wants to step up and maintain that, we'll be happy to facilitate, but this is not likely to be something I'm going to do myself.

    That said, you do have one option: for 10.6-10.8, the Firefox 45 ESR will still run on your Mac and is supported until June 2017. You'll have to downgrade a couple versions, so it doesn't have the absolute latest features, but you will still get security updates and the browser will be safe for use. You can get the ESR for free: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/
