Firefox stopped supporting Windows 200 after version 12.0 (it is the last version that runs on that operating system). Firefox no longer works with Windows 2000

hello, unfortunately support for windows 2000 has been dropped and firefox 12 was the last version to work with the operating system. you can either switch to opera if you want to continue using a current browser or use the extended support release of firefox, which at the moment is still getting security updates but it is intended for corporate environments.
