    I suggest changing the title from : "How to download and install Firefox on Mac"

    To : "How to download and install Firefox on Mac OS"

    As the article seem to be for the operatingsystem Mac OS.

    Instead of referring to "Mac OS" we could rename the article to "How to download and install Firefox on a Mac" or to "How to download and install Firefox on your Mac" ... to refer to the computer itself and not the operating system (or just leave the title as-is).

    We use "Mac" in the version picker and in the {for} markup when referring to Mac systems. To be nit-picky, the operating system name is "OS X" for 10.x versions. Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_OS#OS_X

    P.S. Other KB articles with "Mac" in the title: *[[Installing Thunderbird on Mac]] *[[Firefox no longer works with Mac OS X 10.5]] *[[Firefox no longer works with Mac OS X 10.4 or PowerPC processors]] *[[Firefox can't be opened after you install it on a Mac - How to fix]] *[[Thunderbird can't be opened after you install it on a Mac - How to fix]]

    Ok i dont use Mac or Mac OS. I just thought it is strange that you would say "Linux" and "Windows" that are OS's but then for Mac OS you would talk about the computer instead of the OS on the computer.
