It's all been said:Windows 2000 is too obsolete for programs,but hackers still find ways to keep it alive.Here's a tutorial on how to install Mozilla Firefox(any version) on Windows 2000.

1.Download the Windows 2000 iso.This one is specific,and includes all official Windows 2000 updates.

The link is:https://kickass.so/windows-2000-pro-sp4-final-2011-edition-all-updates-t5041338.html
No viruses here!

2.Install Windows 2000 UURollup v11,or the latest version found here.
https://drive.google.com/folderview?id= ... lXOWs#list
Go to the bottom of the page and download the .7z file.
Extract to a folder you can use easily.
Go to the folder update,and launch update.exe.
NOTE:You will need WinRAR/7Zip for this.

3.Download chrometool.Careful about getting the download from the page!Navigate to a link that says ChromeTool,and download it.This whole page is japenese.If you need help navigating,reply to me and I will post a screenshot.
http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/ar ... 60097.html

4.Open the .cab,and launch CHROME2K.exe.
Extract to Desktop.

5.Launch the file.Go to the right,and press Firefox.
Press "Set Compatible Registry" and "Set UserAgent".

6.Now,you will need to download the offline installer for firefox,downloading won't work.
Go to oldapps.com.
Browse through until you find Mozilla Firefox,and download the latest STABLE offline installer.

7.Go through Firefox setup,and you're finished!

Please reply if something is misunderstood here.I will provide a screenshot.
This way of doing it was thought of by 2008WindowsVista on YouTube.

Try this:http://www.mediafire.com/download/y9pp1fy47u11jx6/Windows2000-UURollup-v3a-x86-Global.exe
It's multilanguage,so maybe it includes French?

Yes, but it doesn't include all the compatibility features that the english version. So you can't run XP programs in compatibility mode

Quite true.I have a screenshot of Firefox,along with Adblock Plus and a theme.
It's the latest stable version,34.0.5.

You don't need to use the chrome tool, just use the application compatibility tool that can be found in the Start menu, if you install the daily Update.

If it's daily,it's better to install this for once and not install updates every day.Plus,it seems this is simpler for many people who don't know their way around Windows.

There's also KernelEx that enables Firefox - amongs a ton of other programs - to run on Win9x, if 2k isn't oldschool enough for you.

I used ESR 10 on Windows 2000, until quite recently.

The computer was extensively rebuilt after the main cockroach died from overheating.

Viewing you should stop using a operating system for any kind of sensitive information on the internet the day it stops receiving security updates why would you care or want a up to date firefox? Personally, I prefer to use the final stable release supported by the os, gives it that nostalgic feeling I crave so bad.

It's still up, so I figured I might as well find the latest links for it... Glad I did, since it seems the original link for it is down.

Recently this stopped working for latest firefox. installing firefox 51 works, but when starting it throws an error about XPCOM and closes. The last that works is 48.0.2, but you have to disable automatic updates or it will update to 51.0 and will stop working.

My question and curiosity are why someone would want to go back to Windows 2000? Probably because Tech intellectual curiosity, however, I don't think security as per system is so secure that will entice me to use window 2000 and try to work my way to have Firefox installed on it. I appreciate your post and your intensive research you put together to post the information here. I will try to see it myself.

Intellectual curiosity? I think lack intelligence fit more. There is nothing to gain or learn by running outdated OS. Is like driving car with zero features of safety.

I remember release of NT 4.0, 2000.. the beta programs. Nothing to be missed...

You're totally right, outdated/beta software can be very dangerous when combined with lack of intelligence. These who lack intelligence better run the latest Windows 10 (preferably the S version), or suffer the consequences.

Thank you for sharing this tutorial, I found it quite interesting to say the least.
I appreciate the picture and the time taken to put this together.

I would certainly agree that on a security level you're putting yourself at a heightened amount of risk though I feel these risks could also potentially be mitigated by emulating such a system instead. While I would not run them as the operating system on my hardware, I don't see as much harm in emulating the systems and experimenting with them from there. I think it makes for very interesting conversation which I believe is part of what adds to the value of the software being preserved.

Perhaps I am wrong here, but I don't think all curiosity in these systems is necessarily bad if taken with care.

I totally agree! Virtualising/emulating older systems is good but running them on real hardware perhaps due to incompatible software or such with the latest versions of Windows. Beta software is also very interesting and fun to mess around with but I would never run it on a real machine :P

Also, the one that said about lack of intelligence and Windows 10, I agree too, Windows 10 is for idiots with its dumbing down and condensing error messages (see: BSOD, Edge's HTTP errors, etc.)
