    Firefox frustrations
    I have a Mac PowerPC G3 with 640mb memory version 10.2.8
    I am trying to install Firefox from Safari. I think i need to install an older version ... 2.0.0.18 or 2.0.0.2 and I have installed 2.0.0.18 and it mounts on my desktop. When i double click on it to open it, it appears in my docking station (as it should) and then bounces for a couple of seconds and goes away. I have tried to drag the .dmg to my applications folder as well. Nothing seems to work.

    I believe this page shows that Firefox 2 should be compatible with your OS version:

    If you're clicking on the .dmg file, that's not the application. Don't drag the Firefox icon to your Applications folder. Drag it to the icon right next to it. Then it will install.

    My apologies if I've not correctly guessed the problem you're encountering.

    I am just not having any luck. Must be something with the "old" computer I have. I have installed more memory, i have a new hard drive and still nothing. I am not even able to download Adobe Flash Player. Thanks for the feedback. I think i know how to fix it....dump it out the window!

    Like toMACsh stated - are you correctly installing these programs or just trying to run them from the .dmg?

    I am correctly installing them....I have done it before and not had a problem. When my hard drive crashed and i replaced it, i have not been able to recover.

    Can you install anything or is it just limited to Firefox and Flash?
