Firefox is a 32 bit application, so you need to create a symlink to the 32 bit version of that dbus library (libdbus-glib-1.so.2). If that library isn't installed then you need to install it via Install Software.

I don't know the reason for your problem but I take your final statement to mean that you do want the latest version: 3.6.8

See this - and in particular my draft on installing the latest version of Thunderbird on OpenSUSE. It's exactly the same with Firefox.
