Recoveryng from a disk crash and Firefox icon in the genie bar vanished after running MAC Disk Utility and now has the "Application" (the A formed by a pen, pencil & ruler) icon instead. Will not launch. Need a version that will run Mac OS X 10.2.4. Is there page on this site to get a compatible version or some wherelse I can get one? Have very some old .dmg copies of earlier version 2.0.0.7 but can not find more recent copies or the one I was running befor the crash. I know , I know I need to update my old G4 but for economic reasons ( I do not have the $$) I can not do so now.

The last release to work on the old OSX 10.2.x was the old EOL Firefox 2.0.0.20 ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/2.0.0.20/mac/en-US/Firefox%202.0.0.20.dmg

Firefox 3.0, 3.5, 3.6 required Mac OS X 10.4 and later. Then for Firefox 4.0 and newer one needs Intel hardware and OSX 10.5+.
