A later libstdc++.so.6 : version "gcc-4.3.2" will do : libstdc++6-4.3.2-1.i386.rpm
The package provides /usr/local/c++4.3/ libstdc++.so.6 libstdc++.so.6.0.10
(The EL5 system libstdc++.so.6 in /usr/lib/ is too old.
And should not be replaced, I think.)


libstdc++6-4.3.2-1.i386.rpm can be downloaded here
https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B7S25...nload&hl=en_US

.. And firefox-5.0.1 will start OK with this command :
cd firefox/ && export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/c++4.3:/usr/lib:/lib && ./firefox

The "export line" can also be added to the 'firefox' start script, line 52.
Then the start command is plain ./firefox

..

Please do not try to install any alien packages, not meant for EL 5 !

Firefox-5.0.1 is a 32bits application. Works OK on EL 5, 64bits x86_64.


EL 5, 64bits x86_64 :
1) # rpm -Uvh libstdc++6-4.3.2-1.i386.rpm && exit
2) cd firefox/ && export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/c++4.3 && ./firefox


Remark : This post was written in firefox-5.0.1, EL5 64bits.
