I have an old MacBook laptop and it doesn't have enough memory for a new version of Firefox; why can't I keep the old version which works fine on this computer?
I am running Firefox version 3.6.23 and I keep getting a message saying that I should upgrade, but I am working on an older MacBook laptop computer with 640 MB of memory and an 800 MHz Power PC G4 with Mac OS X version 10.4.11 and when I tried to upgrade, your message said that it couldn't happen. Please let me keep running the older version of Firefox because it works fine on my old laptop.

I lost Firefox for a week or two after I tried to download the latest version; please let me keep the older version.
The latest 9.0.x version is not compatible with your os.
Firefox 4 versions and later do not run on a PowerPC Mac(like yours) and require at least OS X 10.5 and an Intel Mac.
The latest supported version for your os is 3.6.25 (you have 3.6.23), your can download from here:
[For older Macs that aren't supported in Firefox 4+ versions, if you like, try TenFourFox for PowerPC's running Mac 10.4.11 & 10.5.8]
