Well, the page at http://oss.sgi.com/projects/mozilla/faq.html has a couple
of links, but the link to their own release hangs my browsers (and gets
nothing) and the link to the mozilla.org ftp site is a broken link.

I'm not too sure about Nekochan.net.  Downloading software from places with
unidentifiable contributors ....

I'd download the source and build it myself if I had even a smidgeon of
confidence in my ability to do so, or the time to figure it out.

The search continues.
