No problem here on Slackware 13.37 & Slackware 14.0.

I used 'upgradepkg' or 'slackpkg upgrade' to install the firefox-16.02 Slackware package. How did you do that?

No problem on Ubuntu 12.10 or (what will be) Fedora 18. Looks like you might not have the appropriate version of the xul libraries (xulrunner in Fedora; not sure how it's packaged in Ubuntu)

Hi

I am on the 64 bit slackware and I have file /usr/lib64/firefox-16.0.2/libxpcom.so, on a 32 bit system it would be /usr/lib/firefox-16.0.2/libxpcom.so

Do you have a mix of 32/64 bit software ? You can check if a binary is 32/64 bit by using command "file" and to find the list of files to check by searching /var/log/packages/ for libxpcom. Then for for packages returned check all binaries listed in the files found. For me, libxpcom.so is in 4 packages.
