I am unfamiliar with Linux. I want to upgrade my little daughter's eee PC, because Firefox is very outdated. I spent a whole day downloading all sorts of stuff (gtk+2.10, Asus1-files.deb, etc.) and have been typing all the advised commands exactly. Whatever the source (Softpedia, Mozilla, Ubuntu, wiki.eeeuser, 3eportal), nothing gets it done. Is there anyone on this planet that can help a desperate father out? Is there a logical way to upgrade without typing hours of code?

This started yesterday when I was prompted to download and install the 3.6.7 update for Firefox. After restarting the browser, I get a message that it was not installed correctly, and then it closes without warning. It does not give the usual message that there is a problem and Firefox needs to close.

After experimenting, I've noticed that this only seems to happen when trying to load websites that include Flash content. Gmail and Youtube cause it to crash immediately. Other websites, like Facebook and certain forums will load initially, but will crash on certain pages, where there is probably a flash video or other application.

I tried starting Firefox in Safe Mode, but I still get these crashes. When I go to about:crashes, I get no reports of the recent crashes.

I still can't update Firefox to latest version, so I still have 3.6.6. Every time I try, the installation fails. I do have the latest version of Flash.

I believe I've tried everything suggested in the Knowledgebase, so if anyone has any suggestions I would really appreciate it.

For some reason, since I updated to version 3.6 of Firefox, JavaScript no longer works.

I have checked existing help files which asked me to check the Options under the Tools menu.

These are my settings, which should work, but do not:

1. On the Content tab, "Enable JavaScript" is checked. 2. Under advanced options, the following are checked:

    a) Move or resize existing windows
    b) Disable or replace context menus

Theoretically this should work, but does not. Scripts simply fail to execute. Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Robert Hieger
