firefox no longer supports your operating version and will be vulnerable to online attacks

Hey Firefox,

Long time user, first time writer. Lately, apropos of nothing, I've been getting a pop up stating:

"URGENT! Firefox no longer supports your operating system version and will be vulnerable to online attacks. <a>Learn More</a>"

And that doesn't sound like you guys. I'm using Mac OS 10.5. All my updates have been downloaded, the opening screen of this site tells me I'm up to date. Is this some kind of trick? I also have a screen shot of the occurrence, though not the url.

Please help. Thanks guys,

jen

Re: firefox no longer supports your operating version and will be vulnerable to online attacks

hello jen, i think this is a genuine message, since firefox 16 was the last version which has been released for os x 10.5 and there won't be any future security upgrades for the browser.

Firefox no longer works with Mac OS X 10.5

Re: firefox no longer supports your operating version and will be vulnerable to online attacks

Long time user and frustrated by this... is the solution to stop using Firefox? Because I certainly can't afford to go buy a new Mac just because I'm not eligible for newer operating system upgrades. My Mac isn't even that old... Suggestions?
