That is a fairly old version of Linux, it might not meet Firefox System Requirements for a Firefox 3+ version.
I had to update the GTK package in the version of Xandros that came with my eeePC netbook before installing Firefox 3.
I used these steps to install Firefox 6.0 on my eeepc (I've got Xandros on mine): 1. Close Firefox. Nothing else should be open.
2. Hold <Ctrl> and <Alt> and press the <T> key to open a Terminal / Console, and enter the following command:
sudo bash install_firefox.sh
5. Wait until done (at this point you will have installed Firefox version 3.0.1; you can continue now to install the very latest version)
6. Again in the Terminal / Console, enter
7. Once in Firefox, select Help »> Check for Updates…
8. After everything is done. Close Firefox and the terminal window.
9. Now, you'll have the 3.0.1 version on your pc. I checked for updates till my Firefox gets the version 6.0. It worked fine.
Sorry my bad English! I hope it helps you. Good luck!
