Question Error running firefox-26 in Debian 7.1


Code:
uname -a
Linux debian 3.10-3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.10.11-1 (2013-09-10) x86_64 GNU/Linux

tar xjf firefox-*.tar.bz2

./firefox
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/.../firefox/libxul.so:
libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.
When I run this next command iceweasel opens:
Code:
LD_DEBUG=all firefox > firefoxlog
I tried uninstalling iceweasel but still no go? Checked everything here but don't fully yet understand all the output from the link at the end (env is clean.)

Thanks for any thoughts...

Search for that file: http://packages.debian.org/search?se...sting&arch=any

Is libdbus-glib-1-2 installed?
If firefox is 32-bit, is libdbus-glib-1-2:i386 installed?

Hi AlucardZero Thanks: libdbus-glib-1-2 shows up installed but not as 32bit version(?) I put
Code:
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian jessie main
and still don't see a 32b file available, also:
Code:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list

I assumed Jessie/Sid from the 3.10 kernel. If you're running Wheezy, don't just blindly add Jessie as a source.
libdbus-glib-1-2 is in Wheezy too.
Again, *if* the version of Firefox you are trying to run is 32-bit (check with `file firefox`), then you need to install the 32-bit version of libdbus-glib-1-2 (at least). Search on 'debian multiarch' for directions on how to enable it.

Last time I ran 'file firefox' it gave me the same as kekules_dream 'firefox is/firefox' but now:
Code:
firefox: ELF 32-bit LSB  executable, Intel ..., version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.18, BuildID[sha1]=..., stripped
maybe from adding xulrunner-25.0 or something but thanks again I will look into it more...
