Found you out of need and hoping to get some direction

Recommended Posts

It's good to find this site as I'm hoping solutions will be available. I have a XP desktop (SP3) and Firefox ESR 52.2.1 is presenting with connection errors to common sites such as Outlook.com/ LinkedIn/ Yahoo and others. Your site came up in a google search and after reading Monroe's thread titled 'Browsers Still Working with WinXP in 2017' it was clear I was not alone in this situation. I would upgrade to a new machine/software but that is not possible at this time if you get my meaning, so I'm trying to see what can be done to preserve internet access. I tried SWiron and Sea monkey but they would not install on my OS. I DL'd 98SE's archive of Opera in hopes it will install and run on my machine.

If anyone reading this has some suggestions, I'm open. Thanks to the persons behind this site and I hope to hear from you.

SRWare Iron and SeaMonkey are both still working on XP SP3. SRWare Iron is based on Chrome 49. If you are having issues there might be a separate problem with your system.

If you want you can download the last version of Chrome 49.0.2623.112 for XP from my FTP here: http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/ChromeStandaloneSetup.exe

SRWare Iron 49 is also based on Chrome 49: Portable ZIP: http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/IronPortable_49.zip or installer: http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/srware_iron_49.exe

SeaMonkey 2.46: http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/SeaMonkey Setup 2.46.exe

I downloaded SRWiron ver 56 (not 49) which I'm sure is the reason why it would not install. Was incompatible with my OS. I'll test out the version you linked.

Thanks Bro.
