Gmail says Safari is out of date - looking to see if I can use TenFourFox on my old MacBook. That is the crux of it.
 I am using Mac OS X Lion Version 10.7.5 ( 11G63b )
The above sentence makes little to no sense to me so I hope it does to you and you are able to tell me if I can and should use TenFourFox and how to install it properly for best results.
Thank you !

    Hello Jon, I'm sorry, TenFourFox cannot run on Macs using OS X 10.7. TenFourFox is for older Macs with PPC processors running 10.4 and 10.5. Your options are:

    - upgrade your Macbook to the most recent OS X version it can run, which will likely be >10.7 if it was manufactured in 2009 or later. It will contain a more recent version of Safari.


    - go to and download+install the latest Firefox.

    Firefox still supports 10.6-10.8, but not for long. The better option (also security-wise) is to upgrade OS X to the most recent version if at all possible.

    Please click the Apple top left on your screen and choose "About this Mac". What does it say about your processor and the version of Mac OS X?
