For an unofficial Firefox 24.4.0 ESR compatible version that runs on a PowerPC Mac with OS X 10.4.11 or OS X 10.5.8 you can look at TenFourFox. *http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox/ *http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/37761/tenfourfox *http://code.google.com/p/tenfourfox/wiki/ReleaseNotes2440 See also: *http://code.google.com/p/tenfourfox/wiki/PluginsNoLongerSupported *http://code.google.com/p/tenfourfox/wiki/QuickTimeEnabler *http://code.google.com/p/tenfourfox/wiki/AAATheFAQ

The bigger issue in your case is that you have a PPC Mac and not Intel.

As of Firefox 4.0 support for PPC was dropped and Intel was needed. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/4.0/system-requirements/

Even if you had a Intel, the minimum since Firefox 17.0 has been Mac OSX 10.6+ https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/17.0/system-requirements/

How ever there is a third-party option for PowerMac users as cor-el pointed out.

dgarrelt, for what as Mac OSX 10.5.x (intel) has not been able to support Firefox since 17.0 and for PPC the last was 3.6.28.

If you have a Intel Mac then if you upgrade to at least OSX 10.6+ then you should be able to use current Firefox even.
