Our website has some problems with Firefox 2. I need to decide how much time I spend fixing these problems. Therefore I would like to know how many people are still using this old browser. I know the statistics for our site, but this is skewed, because the site has problems with Firefox 2. So I would like to get some general statistics.

I searched the web but couldn't find a recent statistic telling me how popular Firefox 2 still is.

Check out the W3C browser stats for Firefox. They are skewed towards a more tech-savvy sampling, but it can still be pretty useful.

Hi, as i know mostly used Firefox 3.0 version or upper. so you should not think about firefox2.0. This version was released about 2 year ago.

The good thing about Firefox and the other real browsers that I know of is that they are free software. Therefore, people are able to upgrade often as new versions are released. You may not always have the latest sub-version, but most people will be close.

The reason that IE users don't/can't upgrade is that it often requires purchasing something, like a new version of windows. Also, badly written proprietary (pretend HTML) code forces some to stay with older versions also. I don't believe that any of this is the case with Firefox.
