Somehow, a web page came up and told me to download new updates. Now my Fire Fox has an x through it and i can not open firefox.
using Mac OS X version 10.5.8. A web site told me that i needed to update my firefox. Tried to do so and now i have an X over logo and can not use fire fox. Locked out...HELP
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; PPC Mac OS X 10_5_8) AppleWebKit/534.50.2 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0.6 Safari/533.22.3
What website was it that told you that you needed to upgrade? There is a scam website that is telling users they need to upgrade to spread malware.
As for getting Firefox working again, you will have to use tenforfox as Firefox no longer runs on PPC macs. Firefox no longer works with Mac OS X 10.4 or PowerPC processors
You can find the latest Firefox 3.6.28 release for your PowerPC Mac here:
