I have suggestions in there - try not to get frustrated/angry at my common
sense comments and continue reading. You'll likely find your solution.
You utilize an almost 9 1/2 year-old operating system... I bet there is a
ton of other stuff you cannot do because you are using Windows ME as well -
afford to or not - you have made that choice and now you need to find ways
to do what you want. (Although to be honest - Windows ME faded from
existence faster than most operating systems...)
Also - why is it Microsoft's fault that a web page you are using has decided
to limit its customers to a given web browser version level? That's like
saying, "I bought and paid for this truck with super big tires and 10 ft
5in. tall - why is it I cannot go into your 9 ft 9 in. parking garage I pay
for? Ford (those who made the truck but have nothing to do with the garage)
should allow me to do this."...
As for the, "I paid for Microsoft when I bought the computer but then when
you get old they throw you out and say you have to pay for support. I think
this is all totally wrong." <-- Really? Do you? Think about that. Your
car (if you have one) - once it is paid for and almost 10 years old - do you
have to pay for support? What about that refrigerator you have - once it is
'out of warranty' after a few years (or only one maybe) - do you have to pay
for support? Why should the software you are using be any different than
the rest of your life? *grin*
Maybe FireFox will work (although I think you may have to download v2.x,
could be wrong, try it and see.)
Maybe Opera will work (although I think you may have to download v9.x, could
be wrong, try it and see.)
Just make sure you have the latest version of the Java Runtime Environment
(for your specific needs.)
Might try Firefox 3.5.5 first:
If that is a no-go...
Firefox 2.x system requirements:
FireFox 2.x download:
As for Opera.. Might try 10.10 first:
If that is a no-go...
Maybe Opera 9.64:
Or even as old as Opera 9.27 might be necessary:
And finally - Java...
(Choose Windows, Agree and continue...)
