want to upgrade my browser for very old netbook asus 700 series
I have an old old asus netbook (700 series i think, one of the first) and no matter what i do i just cant seem to upgrade my firefox browser to the newest version.
When i try to download it tells me to save the file, which i do, and then..thats it...nothing. just wondering if its at all possible to upgrade to this latest version or if theres an alternative method?
Eminye Imininingwane Yohlelo
Ngaso sonke isikhathi lapho i-Firefox ivulwa
Lokhu kwaqala ngenkathi...
I realized i needed a better broswer
- Shockwave Flash 10.0 r22
- 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
- I-ejenti Engumsebenzisi: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/2008102920 Firefox/3.0.4
Sorry if this is a waste of your time its just im not tech savvy and have tried everything logically possible but no luck
If you already have Firefox 3.0.4 installed, you must have updated the GTK package that came with the Xandros Operating System on the early EeePC's. You should be able to install Firefox 3.6.x, but I doubt if the latest Firefox 4 version will work.
You should visit the EeeUser forum - http://forum.eeeuser.com/ - and ask them what you should do.
I have a EeePC 900 20GB. When I updated to Firefox 3 on the old Xandros OS it was very slow. When I installed Firefox 3.6 is slowed down even more, and I gave up with Xandros. I installed EasyPeasy - http://www.geteasypeasy.com/ - a distro made from Ubuntu. But that may not work for you, if you haven't installed a larger SSD (solid state drive) - AFAIK, the 700 models came with a 2GB or 4GB SSD and EasyPeasy filled my 4GB SSD almost immediately.
