Updates broke Epiphany

After updating via slapt-get(Slackware 10.2 with Freerock GNOME), I get the following error when I try to start Epiphany:
epiphany: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I take the new Mozilla update caused this, but how do I fix this?

Check and see if you have a /usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.11 directory. If you don't create a symlink from the new mozilla directory to /usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.11 and see if it works.

:~# ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.12 /usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.11

I have that directory and making that link didn't change anything.
I also found a lot of simular problems with google and none of them seem to be solved...

Thanks for the reply though.

I solved this problem by linking the lbrary files from usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.11 to /usr/lib/
