Firefox on a server? Why??

Anyway... Your outdated Firefox in Suse 10.1 is probably related to this announcement from 2008:

Latest Firefox is always available from this site:

Will it even run on an obsolete 2006 distro? I just don't know...

Neither is supported.

OP - if you're using SLES than 'Suse 10.1' would translate to SLES 10 SP1 which is End Of Life. Assuming you have a license you can update to SLES 10 SP4 which is still supported, maintained and includes Firefox 10 ESR (ESR - Extended Support Release). If you don't have a license for SLES, don't use SLES. It'll work, but you will not get any updates.

If it's a new install don't use SLES 10 unless there is a specific reason you need to, use SLES 11.
