I was directed here from Mozilla help regarding how to update my browser. Would you please direct me as to what I can do?

    Hello Tuija,

    you can download TenFourFox from http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox. Scroll down to "Download it today" and choose the right version for your Mac.

    TenFourFox is a special build of the Firefox code for older PowerPC Macs running 10.4 or 10.5.

    If you need further help, feel free to ask.

    Hint: Wait till tomorrow before you download because there'll most likeley be a new version (24.4.0) available.

    Click on the Apple top left on your screen and choose "About This Mac". Under "Processor" you'll see whether you have a G3, a G4 or a G5.

    G3 and G5 are easy, just download the appropriate version from http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox.

    For G4, there are two version because there are different types of G4 processors. Follow instructions at http://code.google.com/p/tenfourfox/wiki/WhichVersion to find out which one you have.

    Chris,
    If she has a G4, she can also upgrade her OS to 10.5.8 correct?

    Yes, though the screen shot looks like it came from Leopard 10.5.8 already. About This Mac should tell the original user which version the computer is running as well. Naturally TenFourFox will run on 10.5.8 too.
