Unfortunately, Firefox 4 and later dropped support for mac 10.4 Smiley Sad Firefox 3.6.28 is the latest version you can use on that Operating System.

Now, that said, have you tried to start Firefox in Safe Mode? That will test to see if your crashes are caused by an extension.

You can also try using the unofficial version of Firefox for Mac 10.4, tenfourfox. http://www.floodgap.com/software/tenfourfox/. Keep in mind this version is unofficial, and there is no support for it from Mozilla. But it might be worth a try.

Dear Tyler, Thank you for answering my question and being so specific. I tried, but in the end, I had to upgrade my operating system and now can run firefox11. Turned out for the best and didn't cost that much at Fix that Mac. They were helpful and courteous and did a good job which is just as well, because I am pretty helpless when it comes to making computers work - they are just tools to do other work for me. I know about as much about making a computer work as a TV - push the button...
