Hi My name isXXXXX hope i can help you

What version of Firefox and Safari are you using now ?
Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Firefox 2.0.0.20
What about Safari ?
Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Safari 1.3.2
The latest version Safari is version 5 and latest version Firefox is version 3.6. But your Mac can only support Safari 1.3.2 and Firefox 2.0.0.20 i.e you're now on the latest that your Mac supports.

If you want to install latest version of Safari and Firefox, then you have to upgrade your Mac OS X into Mac OS X 10.4 or 10.5 to 10.6 (Intel Macs only)

Let me know if you have any questions...

Best Regards,
Ashik

How do I upgrade to Mac OS X 10.4?
To upgrade into Mac OS X 10.4, you have to buy the Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger installation discs. Please give the hardware specs of your Mac and i'll tell if your Mac is compatible or not...(Click on the Apple icon and select "About This Mac", click More Info button)

My Mac:

1.6 GHz
Power PC G5
Memory 256 MB DDR SDRAM
CPU Type Power PC G5 (3.0)
1 CPU
CPU Speed 1.6 GHz
L2 Cache 512 KB
Memory 256 MB
Bus speed 533 MHZ
Boot ROM version 5.2.2f2
Serial E QP44607 JPP6
Well you can upgrade into Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, but not into Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard or 10.6 Snow Leopard as they requires more than 512MB RAM and you only have 256MB of RAM, also Snow Leopard only works or Intel Machines and yours is Power PC.

If you upgrade into 10.4 Tiger, you can run Safari 4 and Firefox 3.6, but not Safari 5 because it requires Leopard or Snow Leopard.

You can buy Tiger OS X installation discs from online store like ebay.com or Amazon.com. Also, upgrading is very easy, just insert the disc and follow the onscreen instructions.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
