Comment (by gk):

 Replying to [comment:19 gk]:
 > 2) Do we need to do anything to notify OS X users on < 10.9 that Tor
 Browser won't work? IIRC Firefox won't extract from the DMG on an
 unsupported system anymore. Having such a mechanism would probably be best
 (in addition to change the text on the website saying the min supported
 version is 10.9)

 The behavior of 7.0a3 is the same as the one for Firefox 53: There is a
 stop sign shown over the icon and if a user drags the app and tries to
 start it a dialog pops up that the macOS version is too old. I think we
 are fine in that regard.
