You can't with the default Xandros Linux Operating System that came with the EeePC, the GTK package is older than what Firefox 3+ versions require.

Linux Software Requirements Please note that Linux distributors may provide packages for your distribution which have different requirements.

   * Firefox will not run at all without the following libraries or packages:
         o GTK+ 2.10 or higher
         o GLib 2.12 or higher
         o Pango 1.14 or higher
         o X.Org 1.0 or higher (1.7 or higher is recommended)
         o libstdc++ 4.3 or higher

I installed EasyPeasy in 2010, which is a netbook variant of Ubuntu, but that project hasn't been updated recently and I think the builders have lost the incentive to come out with a new version because the Ubuntu 11 versions have much better netbook support than back in 2009 and 2010.

I'm looking for a "lighter" version of Linux for my EeePC 900, like maybe Puppy Linux. I don't use my EeePC for anything except for "surfin" and Ubuntu installs too much superfluous crap for installing it in the 4GB SSD, and I can't figure out how to tie both the 4GB and 16GB SSD's together as one "drive" as it was with the Xandros operating system. The first Ubuntu program updates I got after installing Easy Peasy filled up the 4GB drive, and I am too much of a Linux noob to try a figure out how to fix the mistake I made when installing it to the smaller SSD. Firefox 3.6 works fine for me and that is good enough for now.
