Well most likely your missing those lib's its looking for. Try installing those and then install Mozilla or they could be out of your path.. are you installing as root or a user ? Do you have those lib's installed ? Try a find on them, if they are not present, then see about downloading them and installing them before proceeding.

Hello, I noticed you are a newbie, so am I. Have you tried Search there for libstdc and go through some of the stuff it turns up, see if your library file is provided, then download and install the rpm.

Sometimes, you don't always have the right version of a library installed. Look in your /usr/lib and find the file that is closest to the missing file e.g : or something like that, then make a symlink as root:

cd /usr/lib
ln -s

It works most of the time
