i tried to run start firefox like this :
Code:
 /usr/lib/firefox/firefox-bin
returns:
usr/lib/firefox/firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libxpcom_core.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

as i said earlier i found libxpcom_core.so in /usr/lib/firefox , so i did as root:
Code:
 cp /usr/lib/firefox/libxpcom_core.so /usr/lib
and now
Code:
 ldd /usr/lib/firefox/firefox-bin
returns:

seems like it detects the file, but it still doesn't work. when i run this:
Code:
 /usr/lib/firefox/firefox-bin
the cursor just hangs with blank return and ^c doesn't return the prompt. all other attempts to start it return the same errors as before, segmentation fault as normal user or
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified


(firefox-bin:3856): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
as root or sudo

anyone have any ideas on this?

Maybe you should try to compile Firefox from the sources. I think it's easier than fiddling around with the broken package.
