UsingMac 10.4 firefox is version 2.0,0.14 upgrade to what and how? nervous older user!

Posted

Just a little tired of Safari so opened Firefox which I haven't done for a LONG time! The latest upgrade says it is for Mac 10.5 and above. I am assuming I can't upgrade to the latest version but it would be good to upgrade to an earlier version. 3.6? How would I do this?

The latest stable version is 3.6.13. Version 4 is still in beta stage and hence may not be very stable. Since you are a "nervous older user", upgrading to the stable 3.6.13 might be a good idea :)
