Is it posible to get a newer version of Firefox (or some other browser) than came with the SmartBook originally (11.0)?

If so, then why is this ratio zero on most modern computer software?

I do not wish to change OSs, I will lose the tools I have installed and I may not be able to get some of them for the new OS. I just want to upgrade to Firefox 12.0 (Note: 13.0 isn't supported by the website I need either, just 12.0).

I think this may force me to get an Intel Mac that I can't afford... just to access ONE website.

BTW: Chrome 19.0 is the only version of Chrome they support.
