I have a mac powerbook G4 OSX 10.5.8 I USED to have a Firefox browser, but I got sucked in by an invitation to update, didn't realize that the circle with a line through it meant, "don't try to put this in your computer" but it must mean something like that because even tho I later tried to load a different update for a Firefox browser that said for mac osx10.5 or later, and that came up with a circle with a line through it too. How do I find the Firefox version that is compatible with my laptop? The old one was working just fine until I tried the update!!! Please advise.

Firefox 4 and later require at least OS X 10.5 and a Mac with an Intel processor.

You can find the Firefox 3.6.28 version for your OS here:


For an unofficial Firefox 10.0.11 ESR compatible version (TenFourFox) that runs on PowerPC Macs with OS X 10.4.11 or OS X 10.5.8 you can look at:

Plugins are no longer supported by TenFourFox.

"You can find the Firefox 3.6.28 version for your OS here: Firefox 3.6.28: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all-older.html"

I tried going to this link, but it sends me to a page that says I don't meet the system requirements. Is there another link or can you tell me which folder in the FTP I should download from?

The all-older.html page used to still link to the latest Firefox 3.6.* release a month ago.

bmariew, you have not stated what OS and since this thread was started by a PPC Mac user, so assuming you are a Mac user.

Pick your language. ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/latest-3.6/mac/

If en-US then see ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/latest-3.6/mac/en-US/Firefox%203.6.28.dmg

Note that Firefox 3.6 is EOL (End Of Life) as the last security update for it was 3.6.28 back in March.

I have the same mac that the original post was about, mac powerbook G4 OSX 10.5.8. I don't remember what Firefox I was running as the upgrade replaced it. I have 17 now, but it won't run.

You need an Intel Mac to run newer versions of Firefox. Mac OS X 10.5 on a PowerPC processor (PPC) can only run Firefox 3.6. See Firefox no longer works with Mac OS X 10.4 or PowerPC processors

There's currently a download link for Firefox 3.6 in the Install an older version of Firefox article. Here's the link for Mac OS:

P.S. For Mac OS X 10.5 users with an Intel Mac, the latest version of Firefox that will work is Firefox 16. Link: Firefox 16 (US English)
