You could get a proxy that also filters various traffic.  Have a look at
proxomitron.  Its a windows app, but I've successfully got it working
under wine.  Basically, it can change your user agent to anything you
want.  That way, you can use the latest mozilla, which should still be
compatable with the page, but have it report that its an older version. 
You can even have different user agents for different sites.

Mozilla will work fine with different versions in different
directories.  I do that for 1.2 and 1.4.
