    This is supposed to be an older version of Thunderbird on Mozilla.org
    In the Win32 sub folder, English (US). Neither Winzip of anything
    else will recognize it. I tried to rename it to .ZIP and .EXE.
    Neither work. It almost appears that this is a site error, since the
    3.x versions are .EXE files. But I need this last version for a Win98

    Note: I DID find the needed .EXE of this file on

    I'm just wondering what these .MAR files are for? Could they be for a
    Macintosh? If so, they are in the wrong place on the website.

    It looks like two updates to me, only useful when downloaded by
    Thunderbird's built-in updater.

    If you are looking for a full installer at mozilla.org, then read
    this README file further up the same server directory tree
