how to download firefox to windows 98

 Hi Guys, Here's my dilemma. I'm using a very old pc that has windows 98 for os and it cannot dl firefox unless it is microsoft 2000. Is there an answer for this? I mean can I dl 20000? I'd really appreciate the help. I feel all exposed using IE. thanks, juliek

If all you need is a previous Firefox version here's a bunch:

Version 2 worked with Win98.  Keep in mind that the old versions aren't any "safer" than IE 6.0.  Current Firefox add-ons probably won't be compatable with older versions of Firefox.

 Hey Stevie, Thanks for the info, it was just what I needed to know. I found out that some of the add ons aren't compatible, just like you said. You're a prophet and you didn't even know it, or did you? Once again, thanks for the input...juliek

It would be neat if there were a parking garage for old versions of add-ons that are compatable with old versions for those of us who don't have to be on the bleeding edge.

I would recommend Ubuntu. You can run the latest version of Firefox on Ubuntu.
