Which file do I choose to "open With" the latest Firefox version, using an Asus Eee PC 900 series/Linux (without a disk drive to save to)?
I am trying to upgrade to the latest Firefox version using an Asus Eee PC 900 with the Linux operating system. When I choose to download the upgrade, it asks which file I either want to "open with" or "save to". This computer has little memory and no removable disk drive. However, I can use a flash drive to save the file to but which program/file should I select to open this file with?

when I used the reset button
- Shockwave Flash 9.0 r124
- The Adobe Reader plugin is used to enable viewing of PDF and FDF files from within the browser.
- Java(TM) Plug-in 1.5.0_10
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20080404 Firefox/22.214.171.124
It's a little more complicated that that. The version of Xandros Linux (from early 2007) that Asus was using on the eeePC doesn't have the GTK package needed to run Firefox 3+ versions, you need to update it.
Overall, you should consider updating to a newer version of Linux. Ubuntu has a Netbook Remix, and there is an offshoot of Ubuntu called Easy Peasy that is made specifically for Netbooks like the EeePC 900.
I installed Easy Peasy 1.5 on my EeePC 900 after having very slow speeds with Firefox 3.0 after doing the GTK package upgrade on Xandros Linux. Easy Peasy runs a hell of a lot better than Xandros ever did on my EeePC.
