Unfortunately, Mozilla no longer supports the Windows 98 operating system.

The last supported version of Windows 98 Second Edition is Firefox 2.0.0.20.

I noticed that you posted here with a Windows 2000 User Agent. See this MozillaZine Builds thread for information about running Firefox 13-plus versions.

KernelEx may "spoof" the UA to show NT 5.0, so that may not help you.

As far as Win98SE goes, search for info about any KernelEx updates beyond this one http://sourceforge.net/projects/kernelex/ = 2013-04-30
