1. Download a new copy of the Firefox program

2. Firefox 3.6.27: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all-older.html

3. Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re-)install.

4. Install the new version that you have downloaded.

Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks or other personal data.

You didn't mention which version of Firefox you want to upgrade to.

Firefox 3.6.x is the last available from Mozilla for PPC Macs.

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