I have Mac OS 10.4.11; when the offer to download version 4 came I downloaded assuming it would run on my machine; the download wiped out my existing version and then would not work; in re downloading 3.6.16 I forgot to select the English language and the French version downloaded automatically (I live in France). The download pages in "select your language" now only offer version 4. I am unable to find a page for downloading 3.6.16 in English.

I also lost virtually all my bookmarks on an "upgrade" routine - I was able to add 8 bookmarks until this part of the program "froze me out". Will you consider fixing this some day? I have a PowerMac with a G4 processor and am not about to buy a new computer to use Firefox - I'll just migrate to Safari instead, albeit I like your Firefox instead.
