    That's a pretty broad statement. Perhaps you could be more specific as to error messages you are getting. Which software are you using?

    Hi Michael,

    As limnos has suggested what you have posted about your System and computer model are too vague to give you concrete suggestions so you might want to post back with more info of the model Mac you are referring to etc.

    One thing that I wanted to suggest is that to be sure that the versions of the software you are trying to download/install are compatible with 10.3 version you are using. The latest Firefox browser I believe will not work with 10.3 so double check the system requirements on the Firefox download and find the appropriate one for 10.3.

    post back with further questions or comments,

    Littleshoulders is correct about versions, though when you said, "Could not download," I know I can download programs that I cannot install or run on this computer. I can download windows software but there is no way it will run on this computer. "Download" and "install" are two very different things so it helps for us to get more specifics on what you are trying to do.

    micheal, welcome to Apple Discussions.

    What browser are you currently using? Your Mac is not too old to download files. It's possibly a problem with your browser. Do you have another browser that you could use? I believe that the install of Panther installed Safari & Internet Explorer.

    Here's the link to download the Firefox browser for OS 10.3 (freeware)

     Cheers, Tom
