Firefox 3.6 28 Mac

Posted onby
Mozilla Firefox is a robust web browser, that offers great performance and customization.
Since it is a multiplatform browser, it has earned the approval of users who often work with multiple operating systems at the same time (Windows, Linux, Mac. . .).
The rendering engine used by Mozilla Firefox is called Gecko, developed by the Mozilla Foundation and is also used by the Camino browser.
Tabbed browsing, session restore, spell checking, RSS reader, and pop-up blockers are the basic features that a web browser must have, and Mozilla Firefox does.
What's more, the Firefox interface integrates different search engines, including Google, Yahoo, Wikipedia, or eBay, and although you can make new queries, it can also suggest searches as you type.
Personalization and security are the other strong points of Mozilla Firefox. For one, the browser's features can be extended by using extensions (there are hundreds).
Plus, thanks to this version you can enjoy the program without having to install it on your computer since you can use it from any portable storage device.

Available in over 90 languages, and compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux machines, Firefox works no matter what you’re using or where you are. Make sure your operating system is up to date for the best experience. Review system requirements. Put Firefox on all your devices. To get Firefox for Mac 10.4.11 you need to download Firefox 3.6.28 for Mac which is the last version of Firefox to support PowerPC (PPC) Macs. Mozilla has dropped support for Mac OS X 10.4 but Firefox 3.6.28 still works on PPC Macs.Important Note: Running Firefox 3.6.28 on a Mac poses a serious security threat to your Mac. Mozilla no longer issues security updates for it and it has many.

Move to /pub/

I forgot to precreate and symlink this directory, so I had to do the following to move the release to the proper place. I did that with the following, _after_ partial MARs had been uploaded, but before the updates builder had finished (to make sure that no automation was trying to download these files at the same time):

Reset reserved slaves

Reset to 0.


Check permissions / AV scan

Fixed the permissions with:
