    I have this already but it says:

    Review activities will not work properly if you are using Mozilla's Firefox 3.0 browser. Please use Internet Explorer to work with this activity.

    You can't run Internet Explorer on that Mac. You must find a Windows machine to use or attempt to use TenFourFox.

    Can't. 10.5.8 is the highest version of Mac OS X you can run on that machine.

    If the website will only work with Internet Explorer, Windows is needed. It can be run on either a laptop or an Intell based Mac.

    Does it specify an IE version? Try downloading IE for Mac? Otherwise, you need to get VirtualPC for Mac (MS) and install Windows.
