    I also run W98SE and I've found that ALL versions of Firefox still
    exhibit the problem of sucking up 100% of the CPU and causing
    my computer to lock up for the duration(which sometimes is measured
    in minutes).
    I've switched to Opera and have had no problems with it.

    Q: Is it planned to set up a version of firefox 3 for Windows 98?
    The current installer and the systemsettings mention at least that I
    should use minimum windows 2000.

    A: Firefox 3 does not work on Windows 98. This is because it
    requires some operating system features that are not present in
    Windows 9x


    There's a later comment that there is a project that allows V3 to run.

    Strangly, links on that page purporting to link to old versions seem
    to go to the 3.5 download page.

    http://mozilla.mirrors.tds.net/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/

    still works.

    My Win 98 machines are running Version 2.0.0.20 which seems to be the
    last of that line.
     
  5. I look forward to you posting a link to the page that supports that
    claim.

    http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/system-requirements-v2.html

    contradicts you.

    Yeah, sorry about the double post. Outhouse Express crashed when I was
    sending and I fired it up and resent it w/o checking the NG to see if it was
    already there.

    I have other boxes with XP for the OS and Firefox will eat all the available
    CPU cycles on them too.

    Things got locked up at times. I was trying to clear cache and etc, and it
    would lock up. Then, Firefox would not load. I tried reinstalling
    but same thing. 3.5 will not install. I will try to find a ver 3 on this computer to
    install. I hate to fool with that computer, has, 98/ 2000 dual boot, but
    2000 stopped working some time ago. Almost time to start from scratch.
    Too bad I can't get the last updates for 98.

    Why are you still running Win98SE? I'd upgrade to Windows2000 or XP.

    I'll check on that. For the record, Opera works really well. One drawback
    is resolution on images which seem to have less colors.

    I would say 98se runs faster on some things, especially with limited resources.

    That is a wrong assumption IMHO. I just installed Win98 on a logic
    analyzer because the software combined with Windows 2000 doesn't want
    to work. If you compare Win98 to Win2k you'll see Win2k uses the same
    amount of memory. Win2k comes closer to a real 32 bit OS since it has
    proper support for long filenames, better filesystem, etc, etc.

    Win98SE was fairly ok. Win95 was the real piece of crap, i never
    could get it to stay running more than 40 min and often had multiple
    restarts to get it running at all. Before Win95 i had Win3.1 running
    for weeks at a time. WinME was nearly as bad as Win95, which is the
    only competition for Vista.
