hello, the last firefox that ran on macs with the powerpc architecture was version 3.6.28, which is now also outdated and affected by various security vulnerabilities.

Firefox no longer works with Mac OS X 10.4 or PowerPC processors

you could switch to tenfourfox - this is a browser based on mozilla that is maintained & kept up-to-date by an independent project (the downside is, it doesn't support plugins, like flash player): www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox/
