when I download 3.6 to my mac and try and drag the icon onto the application folder to replace the 2.0.20 version it tells me I can't do this as I do not have permission to access some items. How do I get rid of the version 2 and update to 3.6?

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 (re)install.
  • 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.
