I'm on an older MAC operating system 10.4.11 - when I try to drag the new Firefox icon into the Applications folder I get that prompt and it won't go. Have no idea what it means.

Download a new copy of the Firefox program: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/all.html

Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean reinstall.

Install the new version that you have downloaded.
