glib is 2.22, glibc is 2.10.1. How can a Cleric be proficient in warhammers? So please edit your post to include [OS name and version]. I normally use Window Maker.
This doesn't require downgrading system software but relies on hacking Mozilla's install and setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH. How can I remove an Online Account? After running: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/firefox:/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib /opt/firefox/firefox everything works. If you are having problems with a build provided by your Linux distribution then please contact your distribution's support channel. (In reply to pvelkovski from comment #102) > Were you trying
This just happened to me, and i think that it is a result of the Mozilla website failing to recognize that I use a 64 bit version of Linux, and so It isn't helpful either that the download you get isn't explicitly named with "64bit" string. Please direct your discussion to one of our mailing lists. That is why I suggest going to support.mozilla.org, or the respective distribution's support channel, if that seems appropriate.

If they are unable to troubleshoot you to a resolution then there may indeed be a Firefox bug, in which case you should file a new bug report. I added a link to /lib to libxul.so as pointed out by Allan Duncan, and that prevented the error... Arduino Uno has 2 crystal? WTF?

The problem looked like a simple case of dependencies that somehow did not get handled properly by the package manager.
These websites should be serving you the correct build for your platform. Mozilla's own binaries.)

You NEED to adjust the path of your Firefox installation directory.

I am seeing the "libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" error with Firefox 29b06 (latest beta as of today). I hope that clears up any confusion.
