Firefox 29 beta 6 (standard 32.bit tar.bz2 downloaded from mozilla.org/beta) fails to start on a RHEL 6.5 - 64 bit system. The system meets all the "Linux Software Requirements" listed at http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/28.0/system-requirements/. Error message is:

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /tmp/firefox/libxul.so: libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Couldn't load XPCOM.

You downloaded the 32-bit version when you need the 64-bit version which is listed on the Systems & Languages page under the green download button on http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/beta/

Update to beta 7, does this still happen?

Notes for self: Possible regression? https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=829604

It is not a problem with 29.0b6 but rather due to trying to use the 32-bit version without the appropriate files needed in order to run iton 64-bit Linux.
