Firefox stopped updating a while (couple of years) ago for some unknown reason. The button is checked for automatic updates. It was a while before I noticed, so now I've been stuck at v 2.0.0.20 for some time, and trying to manually update from your site doesn't work.

No update available will work, since I missed some. I can't even see what most of the buttons are on these pages of your site. Do I need to reinstall Firefox, as some people have suggested to me, and if so, how do I go about doing that? I'm not particularly computer program savvy.

Thanks,

Taav

hello taav, apple and mozilla stopped support and updates for macs based on powerpc-processors a while ago, so there is no current version of firefox available for your plattform.

as an alternative you could try the independent port from the tenfourfox-project to get an up-to-date browser version (the downside is, it doesn't support plugins like flash and java): http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox/

Which version of Mac OS are you running?

Is that a OS X 10.2 or 10.3 version?
The last Firefox version that works on OS X 10.2 and 10.3 is 2.0.0.20.

The last Firefox version that runs on Mac OS X 10.4 is Firefox 3.6.28.

Current Firefox versions require a Mac with an Intel processor and OS X 10.6 (Firefox 16 runs on Intel Mac OS X 10.5).

For an unofficial Firefox 17.0.8 ESR compatible version that runs on a PowerPC Mac with OS X 10.4.11 or OS X 10.5.8 you can look at TenFourFox.
