How do I install Firefox 4 on to my HP Splashtop (i.e. on the QuickWeb setting)?

more options

My HP Mini has a setting called Splashtop or QuickWeb where I can just start using the internet without loading all of the windows software, however my homepage has recently started showing a message that my firefox browser is outdate and may be prone to attack. I hav tried downloading the firefox 4 to a usb drive but I cannot get it to run. Can anyone help? In the normal mode I have had no problem updating firefox.

At the top of the Firefox menu, click Help | Check For Updates. You should be able to update that way. You'll have to do this several times because you do indeed have a very old version of Firefox installed.

You better check the System Requirements for Firefox 4.0 to make sure that your operating system and hardware are appropriate for installing Firefox 4.0.

Then see these articles for actually installing Firefox.
