What sort of "reminder window" are you getting?

Firefox 2.0.0.11 in Asus Xandros would be updated from the Asus Program Repository, and they haven't updated anything in a few years now, AFAIK. I couldn't ever get an updated version of anything for my EeePC 900 since late 2008 or early 2009.


As far as installing a Firefox 3.0+ version, like many websites (like YouTube) are looking for their users to be using, you would have to update the GTK package at a a minimum to meet Firefox 3.0 system requirements.

I did that earlier this year and found that Xandros couldn't handle Firefox 3.0 too well, Firefox was slow as hell. I ended up installing an offshoot of Ubuntu 10.04 called EasyPeasy 1.6.
