Firefox no longer working with Mac OSX 10.4.11

i'm using Mac OSX 10.4.11 and Firefox 3.6.12. As i understand it any of ur upgrades no longer work with this computer system. ( I tried to upgrade last week and ur site said upgrades no available gfor my platform version. Last week every time i conducted a search (default Google) i was redirected to gives? Have I been hijacked? also sites that I use daily are clipped and entire pages are smaller than usual . see
If u are no longer supporting Mac users, please let us know in advance or at least post it on ur site. Can no longer use Firefox...

When you have a problem with one particular site, a good "first thing to try" is clearing your Firefox cache and deleting your saved cookies for the site.
(1) Bypass Firefox's Cache
Use Cmd+Shift+r to reload the page fresh from the server.
(You also can clear Firefox's cache completely using:
Firefox > Preferences > Advanced
On the Network mini-tab > Cached Web Content : "Clear Now")
(2) Remove the site's cookies (save any pending work first). While viewing a page on the site:
Tools > Page Info > Security > "View Cookies"
Then try reloading the page. Does that help?
If you open about:crashes, you should get links to online crash reports. You could post some of the crash IDs for review by volunteers here.
Given the timing, another issue might be some ads or media in the page. There are some add-ons to block such things...

  • Firefox 18 no longer works with Mac OSX v10.8.2 Mountain Lion

    I have been running FireFox v17 with Mountain Lion (OSX 10.8.2) without any issues.
    The auto updater from Mozilla requested that I upgrade to FireFox v18, but since installing Mozilla FireFox crashes immediately.
    The browser opens but then does nothing. If you enter a URL and enter then nothing happens. It just shows a continuos blank screen.
    I wanted to make other Mountain Lion users aware of this problem and wondered if anybody else has had this problem? Please Mozilla, check this bug and offer an update and solution.
    I'm using Chrome in the interim, which I really do not like as a developer.

    Hi cor-el,
    Thanks for your advice.
    I had already carried out the re-install and restarted the iMac etc.
    This has not fixed the issue. When I start Firefox it opens fine but if I type in a URL and press enter then it does nothing. It is as though FF is dead!
    I have repeated the steps, exactly as you suggested again, and nothing has changed?
    This has never happened before? So I need to continue using Chrome, which I hate, until another solution is found.
    Thank you and regards,

  • Re: Firefox no longer works with Mac OS X 10.5, will upgrading to Lion, OS X 10.7, help with this issue?

    I cannot upgrade my Mac to Mountain Lion, OS X 10.8 and cannot buy a new Mac so will upgrading from
    OS X 10.5 to OS X 10.7 help with this issue?

    If you are going tob e upgrading to 10.7 you should be able to just upgrade, and then install future updates of Firefox with no problem.

  • Firefox just sent a notice that it no longer works with Mac OS X 10.5. Is that why my gmail calendar keeps non- or dysfuntioning?

    I have been experiencing constant dysfunction in my Gmail calendar on my Mac Mini, but not on any other computer. It happens whether I am using Safari or Firefox.   This morning Firefox sent a notice that is no longer works with Mac OS X 10.  Suggestions?

    Your best bet is to get a computer capable of running the latest version of Mac OS X - Mac OS X Mountain Lion (10.8). This is the most secure option and will allow you to run the latest and greatest Firefox.
    That is a pretty crazy suggestion just to update a browser! There is another alternative if you are worried about having an unsupported browser.
    You can run TenFourFox whose purpose is to support older Macs.

  • Photo Mechanic 4.6.9 Not Working With Mac OSX

    I have Mac OS 10.4.11, and suddenly Photo Mechanic 4.6.9 stopped opening a few hours ago.  Last night it worked and this morning suddenly the shortcut icon disappeared and when I try to open from applications folder I get message saying this application cannot be used with Mac OSX!  I need to use this application for work so I really need to get this working.  Help!

    Could be many things, we should start with this...
    "Try Disk Utility
    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.
    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Disk Utility from the Installer menu at the top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)
    Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Disk Utility.
    3. Click the First Aid tab.
    4. Select your Mac OS X volume.
    5. Click Repair. Disk Utility checks and repairs the disk."
    Then try a Safe Boot, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, reboot when it completes.
    (Safe boot may stay on the gray radian for a long time, let it go, it's trying to repair the Hard Drive.)
    Also, could it have possibly auto updated to a later version?

  • BB Desktop Manager no longer works with Mac Maverick - Need Help Urgently

    I have been a loyal Blackberry user since the Government of Canada officially began using these cell phones. I feel, however, abandoned by Blackberry (they obviously don't believe that it is easier to retain an existing customer than acquire a new one). I'm using a Blackberry Bold (9900) with a Macbook Pro. Everything was fine until I upgraded my Mac operating system to Maverick; my Blackberry Desktop Manager no longer works, so I cannot sync the content (contacts, calendar) of my phone with my Mac, but that's not the worst of it.
    I recently had a momentary lapse and exceeded the 10 password attempts to access my phone... this accidentally wiped my phone clean... and because Desktop Manager does not work with Mac, I do not have a way to recover my data. Rogers was of no help and had Blackberry updated its desktop software months ago, as it should have, this issue would have been moot. I do not know how or why, but I was able to recover most of my data, but I'm not sure just how up-to-date tha data is and am still going through it, but I'm having issues with some functionality.
    I'm in the US for several months and have suspended my Canadian services. Prior to the wipe, I was able to use wifi on my phone to send and receive emails with no problem.  After the wipe, I can't send emails or bbms.  I checked my blackberry internet service and all email accounts are good to go. BBMs are another issue.  I need help.  Suggestions please. 

    Apple has ceased synchronization with Mavericks. The issue lies with Apple, not with the desktop software. To mitigate the lack of sync capabilities in Mavericks you can sync your contacts and calender on your Mac with the usual suspects (Yahoo, Google). Create a backup (archive) for Contacts and Calender on your Mac first, then create one of those email accouonts that allow syncing. On your 9900 and with BlackBerry provisioning enabled create the new or existing email account. See which email accounts can sync with BB, I know Yahoo is working fine. For Yahoo, get the Yahoo Calender sync (a few bucks one-off payment required), Contacts sync works off the shelf within BB. If you reset the 9900 you should be able to restore all data with BB DTM. Please note that emails you received during the 9900 reset and the date of restore will not be available on the device. You will still not be able to sync contacts/calender over BB DTM. I hope that helps.

  • A Firefox version that works with MAC X, Version 10.5 running on a MAC Book Pro G4

    My harddrive has been replaced recently and when I tried to download a firefox version. I am told that the new version won't work with this computer; a mobile Powerbook Mac Pro, 15 inch, G4 processor @ 867 MHZ the operating system is 10.5.8. Is there an older version available that will work with this hardware and OS?

    Beginning with Firefox 4, Macs must have an Intel x86 processor (which you do NOT have; yours is a PPC Mac) '''''<u>and</u>''''' OSX 10.5 or higher
    *System Requirements: [ Firefox 4] [ Firefox 5] [ Firefox 6] [ Firefox 7] [ Firefox 8]
    The good news is that Firefox 3.6.24 still supports OSX 10.4 and Macs with the PPC Mac architecture. The bad news is that support for the Firefox 3.6.x series is likely to end in the first quarter of 2012.
    *System requirements: [ Firefox 3.6.x]
    *Download Firefox 3.6.24:
    *Also see -->
    You can try the third-party product '''''TenFourFox''''' that supports PPC Macs. Firefox 8 version of '''''TenFourFox''''' is available. The product is based on Firefox released versions. All support is provided by the developer, not by this site:

  • Firefox no longer working with Multibox used to work with Firefox. I last tested it successfully about September 2012, with whatever the current version of Firefox was.
    I tested it tonight, with 21.0 and it was not working.
    It works with current versions of IE and Opera.
    I reinstalled Firefox version 20.0 and that does not work either.
    I had Firefox version 12.0 on a laptop and it was working tonight.
    I upgraded the laptop version to 21.0 and it no longer works.

  • HP scanner no longer working with Mac?

    My HP C4680 scanner/printer used to work with my Mac.  The printer still works fine, but after upgrading to Mac OS X 10.6.8 the scanner is no longer working.  I receive a message - scanner not found.  Anyone know how to fix this to make the compatible again?

    I have the same problem.

    I reinstalled HP Photosmart Studio with HP Scan Pro, still the same.
    What's going on Apple?!

  • Aperture no longer works with new osx Yosemite update

    I installed new OSX Yosemite update and now it says that my Aperture App. will not work with this version. What can be done other than updating Aperture?

    It's a five step process
    Call Apple Support for Software > Aperture
    Answer questions at recorded message (have Aperture serial number ready – it is on a sticker on the back of the 'Installing Your Software' booklet) and you will be transferred to a real person.
    Inform them of the issue and they will tell you that this is a known issue with certain users and they will request a 'Redemption Code' for the App Store for a standalone download of Aperture. The issue will be rectified in the next Yosemite release.
    Wait for email from Support (they have to contact Support in California for redemption code, so depending on your time zone, there may be some delay).
    Visit App Store, enter redemption code, and you are good to go.
    Hope this helps.

  • Why does Firefox no longer work with Slate or AIM?

    1. On I allow all scripts to run; however, even though most links on the pages work, I can no longer view comments in articles -- the function to open the comments simply does not work.
    2. When I load the standalone desktop AIM program, until Firefox 37 I was able to click the mail icon and go directly to my AOL mail; this no longer works, but instead logs me out of AOL and I have to log in again.
    I don't know if these are related, but both appeared when I allowed an upgrade to version 37.
