I used Terminal and FTP to download Firefox 3.0 late this afternoon. It seems to work fine on:
iMac DV (600 MHz G3) 10.4.11
iMac 17" (800 MHz G4) 10.5.3
Dual 2.0 GHz G5 10.4.11
MacBook Pro 15" (2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo) 10.5.3
MacBook Pro 15" (2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo) Windows XP Pro (Parallels 3)
a-okay on a MacBook

Some add-ons I like not ported to Firefox 3 yet .
It does seem faster.

I suppose I could go down to the basement and dig out the Classic II. What's it worth to you?
Hate to burst the bubble, but if you have an older Mac, it may not work at all.
- Downloaded FF3 to my husband's iBook - works fine.
- Downloaded after getting too many popup windows to my desktop Mac, 2002 QuickSilver, 800 Mhz PPC G4, OS 10.4.9 Their specs indicate it should work with this OS.
Don't know what the problem was, but it crashed repeatedly right after opening. In a word, it wouldn't really open at all. Restarted - same problem. Sent the report notes from the popup troubleshooting window, but haven't heard anything back from Mozilla.
Managed to get back v. 220.127.116.11 from a backup, and getting rid of v3 was just a trash/delete from the Applications folder. HOWEVER, I lost most of the "saved" logins, even though the Mozilla site says prefs, etc. won't be lost by trashing the application.
Everything A-OK now, but wanted to warn anyone wondering whether to install on an older machine.
