Hi there, as you say Firefox is not working on your Windows ME but Firefox is still compatible with Windows ME. And about the Adobe Flash player it must be a problem with your Operating System.

First of all you do the following:

Go to the Temp folder: Windows 98/ME: Start> Run> Type C:WindowsTemp> OK. Then select all files and folders in the Temp folder directory and delete all of them. Make sure that the folder of Firefox is properly deleted from the Program Files of C:.

Then download it with your default browser from the following site:

http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

After download install it properly in the default directory with recommended configuration.

Then go to the Adobe flash player site and install it from the web site. By completing all tusks restart your computer.

If you are installing the latest version of Adobe Flash Player and Mozilla Firefox on your Microsoft Windows Millennium, I’m sorry but it won’t be possible. The earliest version of Microsoft Windows that the latest version of Mozilla Firefox supports is Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 while the oldest possible version of Microsoft Windows that the latest version of Adobe Flash Player can be installed is Microsoft Windows XP.

If you are only running Microsoft Windows ME, you probably need to search for an archive where both programs are still supported. The latest possible version of Adobe Flash Player you can install on your Windows ME is Adobe Flash Player 9.0.115.0. For the Mozilla Firefox web browser, the latest possible version you can install on Windows ME is Mozilla Firefox 2.0.0.20.

That is a very old Microsoft Windows operating system you got there. I also have Windows ME before as well as Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows 98 SE. But since the operating system is getting replaced by new versions, I had to install the modern ones because of the programs I’m using. But I’m still keeping my very old Windows Millennium setup CD.
