Firefox 3.0 and 3.5/6 versions require at least Mac OS X 10.4

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unsupported_operating_systems


If you have Mac OS X 10.4 or newer then do this:

  • Download a new copy of the Firefox program: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/all.html
  • Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean reinstall.
  • 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 and other personal data.
