No, you can't.

Windows users who've stuck by older versions of Windows are also going to find that Firefox 2 is the end of the line for them. With Firefox 3, Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows ME will no longer be supported.

Cairo, used by Fx3 as graphic fundation, doesn't work on pre-Win2000 systems.

However, Cairo /could/ work on Windows 9x as it is by it's nature a cross-platform graphics library - the simple fact is that there is not the willing talent to maintain the 9x backend for cairo as it would mean writing reimplementaions for a lot of GDI+ and above functionality.
