I am using an asus netbook with linux. For whatever reason the installed firefox is set to update automatically, which it unfortunately for me does not do When I download the latest version of firefow the netbook only accepts *.eap or *.deb files. I was wondering if the frefox update files even come as one of these files!? Can zou help me figure out how to getthe latest firefox version? Thanks! Sincerely, Petra E. Krips

Is it an eeePC? I have an Asus eeePC 901 linux with an old version of Firefox. It is possible, but complicated, to update to the current version of Firefox. I suggest you search on the eeePC forum - it's a subject that has come up several times. http://forum.eeeuser.com/

You might also consider installing a more up-to-date version of Linux like UNR - again details on that forum.

You are probably missing the needed libraries and other files needed to run current Firefox versions.

You can look at other Linux distributions:
