Sub_title: Get a new version of Firefox in Puppy!
 

1st: Go to "www.mozilla.org/firefox" and download the tar.bz2 file.

2nd: Extract the files inside into "/usr/firefox".

Note: You can run Firefox by clicking on the file named "firefox" inside, but we need to make it open the new Firefox when clicking the icons on the desktop and when clicking Firefox in the menu.

3rd: Right click on "browser" on your desktop and open it as text. (Back it up first just in case.)

4th:Make the file look like this:

Code:
#!/bin/bash
   exec /usr/firefox/firefox "$@"



Note: Now the browser icon opens up the new Firefox.

5th: Go into "/usr/bin" and find "firefox", then back up "firefox".

6th: Open "firefox" as text, then make it look like this:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
#set -x
BROWSER=firefox #this script can be adapted to seamonkey
# check arch
ARCH=`uname -m`
[ $ARCH = x86_64 ] && lsuffix=64 || lsuffix=

EXEC=`find /usr/lib${lsuffix}/$BROWSER* -type f -name $BROWSER`
/usr/firefox/firefox "$@"

# when firefox closes we fix the cache, once only
[ -f $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/fixcacherc ] || fixcache


Note: Now the Firefox option in the menu opens Firefox.

How to Get Future Updates: Go to "About Firefox" in Firefox's menu.

Enjoy using the new Firefox!

The above URL to get the Linux Firefox will not work in Dillo, the only web browser included by default in Puppy. The links on that page use HTTPS, which Dillo does not support. If you are using Dillo, use the following link and then select your language to find a link to download firefox*.bz2

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest/linux-i686/

Easier, just use the portable Firefox program. It will download the most recent Firefox for you and create a one click solution. Portable Chrome and Seamonkey do the same.

@Flash - I've not tried it, but my guess would be slavvo67 is talking about Shinobar's app, here -
