Exactly what issues are you having?
In the beginning there was the command line.

I think Firefox 2.0.0.20 is the last version that ran on Win9x.

I did get firefox 2.0 downloaded and installed :thumbsup: Computer will be on line very little and behind a fire wall, never have cared for IE and the hack problems with it. This computer will be used for an EchoLink node on ham radio with low power requirements so I can run every thing on battery backup so it will stay active during power outages. I am on AEP (almost electric power)and at the end of the line so outages happen often.

Firewall Win98SE doesn't have one as standard have you installed one?

I used IE6 SP1 with Win98SE\ME no problem and I'm using IE8 on my desktop and laptop computer I find IE suitable.
