    well, what are you using to get on here to post the question?

    since you have a computer, just redownload safari from apple if you want, or any number of other browsers. If you ar on someone else's computer, save it to a usb stick and then install when you get on your machine

    Either use another computer to download the disk image of firefox. Or you should be able to use the additional applications disk that came with your Mac to restore safari.

    Download the Mac disk image on your PC and then email it to yourself if you have mail set up, if not stick it on a flash drive and move it over. Might have to be formatted to FAT t hough.

    do you have a usb thumb drive? i would do this oppossed to ftp as it's simpler

    if so, simply just plug it into the pc and click the link and save it on the usb drive

    then on your mac, insert the thumb drive and install the downloaded file off it
