My Mac has 10.4 OS X, I need most current version of Firefox that is compatible. HELP!

Posted

I have had Firefox 2.0 installed on my Mac Book 10.4 Tiger for a long time. Now I have to do an online course that requires Firefox 3.0 or newer. I cannot download 3.6 because it's not compatible. I get an error message. How do I find an older version than 3.6 to install?

Chosen solution

Firefox 3.6 should work fine on an Intel Mac with OSX 10.4.

Thanks so much. I see that the compatibility is not the problem. I uninstalled Firefox 2.0 and the did the installation of 3.6 and it worked! Yay! Thank you for your help.

You can find the latest Firefox release in all languages and for all Operating Systems here:


Firefox 4 and later require at least OS X 10.5 and a Mac with an Intel processor.

For an unofficial Firefox 10.0.3 compatible version (TenFourFox) that runs on PowerPC Macs with OS X 10.4.11 or OS X 10.5.8 you can look at:
