Mac OSX 10.5.8 is a PowerPC computer. Your info says it should support a Firefox browser & I REALLY want one since I always liked Firefox better than Safari, but I get the message saying that my system doesn't support Firefox.

I'd be happy to purchase a disc in order to load the Firefox software. Thanks.

Beginning with Firefox 4, Macs must have an Intel x86 processor (which you do NOT have; yours is a PPC Mac) and OSX 10.5 or higher

The good news is that Firefox 3.6.24 still supports OSX 10.4 and Macs with the PPC Mac architecture. The bad news is that support for the Firefox 3.6.x series is likely to end in the first quarter of 2012.

You can try the third-party product TenFourFox that supports PPC Macs. Firefox 8 version of TenFourFox is available. The product is based on Firefox released versions. All support is provided by the developer, not by this site:
