Firefox 2.0.0.20 is the last ever release for Mac OSX 10.3.9 and earlier versions, but that may not work any better because some large websites are blocking those older browsers or dropping support for older browsers like IE6 & earlier, and Firefox 2 & earlier due to security issues.

Using Safari on those websites (not enough total users for websites to be concerned about), or installing a new version of MacOSX are two solutions; or getting a new computer.
