I’m running an eMac G4 with system 10.5.8. The entire navigation toolbar on firefox 4.0b6 is “broken.” The buttons are grayed out and will not function. Typing in an URL will not work either. In fact, nothing works. Is there a way to fix this or do I have to wait for the next incarnation of Firefox to be ready for release?

Firefox 4 will not work on the PPC Mac. The system requirements for Firefox 4 on the Mac are:

  • 32- and 64-bit builds (universal binary)
  • minimum version: Mac OS X 10.5
  • CPU architecture: i386, x86-64

Then why was the beta version released in universal binary? It works on the PPC...sort of. It’s buggy, but it works.

The latest development builds contain x86 and x86_64 versions for the Mac, they no longer include PPC. This change occurred towards the end of September.
