I have the latest puppy linux running from a bootable flash drive.

Almost everything works just fine. There is one thing, however, that doesn't.

The available browsers (Seamonkey, Midori, Firefox, and a couple others) are old versions.

The problem with this, is that there are some webpages that do not load correctly and cannot be browsed properly.

I tried to download a new version of firefox and install it with the available package manager. I was not successful.

What can I do?

Can you include the output from the package manager that suggests it was unsuccessful? It may help. – dotVezz Nov 1 '13 at 14:18
Also, which version of Puppy Linux are you using specifically? "The latest" isn't very specific, and will only get more vague as time passes. – dotVezz Nov 1 '13 at 14:25
also, it is unlikely pages do not load correctly because of your browser. The fault is much more likely to lie in some additional component, Java, Flash Player,.... – MariusMatutiae Nov 1 '13 at 15:45
