I've encountered a strange problem with the latest release of Firefox
Quantum v-60.0.

Up to this point the previous versions, the 59.x.x, series had been very
happily residing in /opt/firefox.  I uncompressed the downlo9aded file as a
user and thee copied the firefox directory tree as root

I did the upgrade exactly the same way, but now when I try opening firefox I
get:

comp@AbNormal:/opt/firefox$ ./firefox
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /opt/firefox/libnspr4.so:
/opt/firefox/libnspr4.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

What I find really puzzling is that I can run the new version in my user
directory tree without any problems.

What is going on here?
My first guess: you forgot to wipe out the old version before you unpacked
the new version into the same target directory.  So now you've got a mix
of files from two different versions, and something gets confused.


Actually not. I renamed the v-59.x.x in /opt and copied the version directly from the user subdirectory in wi=hich I unzipped the download.
