Go to this website- www.mozilla.org for the latest linux version- You are going to want: firefox-19.0.2.tar.bz2 download and open with archive manager.

Firefox is open source so it should (and usually does) work well with linux. let us know if that helps!

Judging from the 3.6.6 and 2010 in your UA you likely have the old 2010.07 version as shown on http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=pclinuxos

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2.6) Gecko/20100628 PCLinuxOS/1.9.2.6-1pclos2010 (2010) Firefox/3.6.6

This big issue is you may have some dependencies issues due to having older necessary packages installed.
