Mozilla Browser for BSD/OS


This page has links to various release versions of the Mozilla browser.

Normally, you would want to get this software from the Mozilla ftp server. In some rare cases, you might need to grab a release from this server.

Version 1.2.1

No additional libraries need to be installed to run this version of the browser. A compiled form of the browser is available for both the sparc and x86 architecture machines running BSD/OS 4.2. Currently the only available build for BSD/OS 4.3 is for x86 computers.

Historical Versions of Mozilla


I have moved the archive of older versions of the Mozilla Browser offline, to conserve disk space. Nobody should be using a version of Mozilla older than the 1.0.1 release -- previous versions have noticeably inferior performance and many more bugs. If you are running an older version of the browser, do yourself a favor and upgrade to at least version 1.0.1. If you receive some perverse pleasure in reading old software bug reports and building notes, the original notes (but not the binaries) are available for various older releases.
