If you're an expert go and sort it.
Well, I agree with that assessment. But not the assessment of Windows 98. Windows 98 is not supported any longer, and cannot be supported by the user themselves.

Yes.

Open firefox in a terminal. use any terminal and type "firefox".
Then print the output from "terminal" here in this thread.


That should help us help you!

Lots of old (possibly security flawed) and new OSs run good for me on old PCs

Download Firefox or Firefox-64 unpack etc.


Edit\Add:
And, yes saving the error output is not thought of at times but if you can recreate it or describe it best plus hit solved or tell us what did or if fixed

I know I ought to bite my tongue her but I can't help it:
Please do not presume to know the abilities of others or their resources.
If I wanted to run Windows 98 connected to the internet safely I would (I did, briefly, but ran out of patience with multimedia). The fact you've not heard of patching, debugers, registry editing, firewalls, virtual machines and a myriad of other things which can render the least secure OS safe doesn't mean the rest of the world hasn't.
Any OS can be supported by a well-resourced and well-educated user -- that being my point.

My mistake.

I do however assume you find that easier with old versions of Debian where you can actually look into the core system itself?

I haven't tried running old Debian versions, actually, but I think it would be the same process.
My point was more that if you have the means to keep something that old going then you ought not to need simple outside help as was asked for in the OP.
