you do not "update"
SUSE Linux 10.1
( there was a name change in the NON FREE !!! enterprise linux
it is now SELD -- SUSE Enterprise Linux Desktop)
or the other
OpenSUSE 10.1

they are unsupported

you install the FREE OpenSUSE 13.1
or the NOT free
SELD 11 sp3
-- "SUSE Enterprise Linux Desktop- service pack 3 "

And it's not a good idea to install software from outside your distro's repository unless you are fairly experienced. Get an up-to-date version of OpenSUSE (13.1) and you'll get an up-to-date Firefox (version 25!)
