The Firefox 3.5.x branch has reached end-of-life and is no longer maintained.
You will no longer receive security updates.
You can update Firefox via "Help > Check for Updates" or download and install the latest Firefox 3.6.x or 4.0.x version.


Download a new copy of the Firefox program and save the DMG file to the desktop

  • 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.
