Re: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/

This looks like firefox-bin can't find, at runtime, the libraries it needs ? Try (on Linux)

ldd /complete/path/to/firefox-bin

It will most probably show something like more than 45 dynamic libraries it needs (.so files). I don't know exactly which one your problematic "g_thread_pool_set_sort_function" comes from. But most probably it's not in your dynamic library's search path (either from ldd and/or /etc/, either from LD_LIBRARY_PATH).

If I'm right on your problem's analysis, then you can look up on Google what I meant with (either ...., either ...). If that doesn't bring you any further, feel free to come back asking here.

Hope this helps. Kind regards,


P.S. Not that I think this is very gnome/gtk related :p
