Firefox 60 installation issue

Post by borisko » 2018/05/18 10:46:26

Hi folks,
I have CentOS 6.9 on my VDS and I want to install Firefox 60 (at least above 58v).
I've already found this article and downloaded i686 version but an error occurs after installation.

Code: Select all

# firefox -v | more
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/local/firefox/libmozgtk.so:
libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.
How to install Firefox (58v or above) properly on CentOS 6.9?
Thanks!

You'll need to wait for Redhat to ship their version of firefox ESR. I'd be pretty certain they'll need to make changes to the mozilla source to get it to work with an operating system as old as CentOS 6 as developers always like to build against new/shiny components. However, since your current complaint is using tehe 32 bit version of firefox 60, and it's complaining about libgtk-3.so.0 being missing...

yum provides '*/libgtk-3.so.0'

then install the 32 bit version of the package that supplies it. Maybe it'll work, maybe it won't.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
