what versions will work with Windows ME?

Posted

I currently have Firefox 1.something on my aging Windows ME system. My e-mail provider recently upgraded and consequently, I need to be using at least verion 2.0 of Firefox. I downloaded the newest version, but get an error after the files have been extracted and the setup starts to run. Which version(s) of Firefox will work with Windows ME and from where can I download that version?

You can try KernelEx to get Firefox 3+ to work, but IMO it would be very slow with an old PC of less than (say) 750Mhz and like 512MB RAM.
