Asus EEEPC and Hotmail

I have a Asus EEEPC using Linux and Hotmail have recently made changes which prevent my using the email service fully. It tells me to download an updated version of Firefox and provides a link. I have done this and can see the download taking place but it does not install the update. How do I do this?

Have you tried the top section of this page?

That’s great, it worked, thanks.
