Firefox 2.0.0.20 is the last ever release for Mac OSX 10.3.9 and earlier versions. If that is what you have, get it here:
https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/2.0.0.20/mac/en-US/

IIRC, Norton didn't have an anti-phishing extension for Firefox 2 versions, at least for Windows, their first was for Firefox 3. Check with Norton about that issue. http://norton.lithium.com/norton/

If you have Mac OS X 10.4 or newer then do this:

  • Download a new copy of the Firefox program: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/all.html
  • Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re)install.
  • Install the new version that you have downloaded.

Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data.
