Does this mean that the beta won't be compatible with 10.4? Or even that Firefox 4 won't be compatible?
(In reply to comment #3) > Does this mean that the beta won't be compatible with 10.4? Or even that > Firefox 4 won't be compatible? You're out of luck, Firefox 4 / Gecko 2.0 requires 10.5 or higher It is a bug on the download page that it says '10.4'.
