Not sure why they refer to 2.0.0.x as 2.0.x.x when all security updates was 2.0.0.x with 2.0.0.20 being last back in December 18, 2008.

You could perhaps use the portable Firefox 2.0.0.20 version either on hard drive in its own folder or on a usb flash drive just for this old program. This will not affect your Firefox install.


Also the Firefox 10.0.2 is old and vulnerable as it was the last 10.0 on the release channel at time and a a ESR channel continued it to 10.0.12esr. However if you really do not want to do major version updates then perhaps use the 17.0.2esr at least as the 10.0.*esr channel support will end when Firefox 19.0 is released.

Are you sure that the software doesn't work with current Firefox versions?

This looks like a really outdated message.


There are other things that need your attention.

You should update your Java version to Java 6 update 38 or Java 7 update 11.

Update the Java plugin to the latest version.

You can find the latest Java version on the Oracle website.
