Firefox notifies me that I'm not running the latest version (I have 3.6.24 GTB7.1) and to download the version compatible with my older system (Mac Tiger 10.4.11). I click on that link and can find nothing that states what systems the version(s) there are compatible with. I have in the past downloaded and installed an incompatible version, a situation to avoid for obvious reasons.

You have the latest version of Firefox for PPC Macs and for 10.4.11, the Firefox 4+ versions require Intel and 10.5.8 or higher.

For older Macs that aren't supported in Firefox 4 thru 8, try TenFourFox for PowerPC's running Mac 10.4.11 & 10.5.8 .

Thanks for the fast responses, I am particularly happy to have found the floodgap.com website. Didn't think that I was the only one muttering about the abandonment of two decades of pre-Intel software and tech files that my work depends on, and am glad to see some action in that direction. Surely a cottage industry will spring up to keep hardware available. I love what Apple has brought us but not their ability to turn their back on what brought them up, and millions of users in the process.

What's available for 10.4.11 on an Intel-based Mac-Mini? What Firefox version works for that machine/system?
