User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) Build Identifier: Of course, my first clue was that the system requirements page talks about gtk+ 1.2.0, and the newest Linux build has GTK2 in the title. So I was prepared, or so I thought. I have gtk2.0.4 installed on my system. Then I installed firefox .9.3 onto my system. /usr2/src/firefox/firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Yeah, no surprise there. I'm running a somewhat update RedHat 7.2 system. stdc++ 5? Not a chance. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download firefox for gtk2 2. install it on a redhat 7.2 system that has gtk2.0.4 installed 3. run it Actual Results: It failed to find a needed library. Expected Results: The website should have said what libraries I needed. Please note that telling me I need a particular version of RedHat isn't very useful. Updating certain things is possible, updating the system is a much larger problem. Note that I am marking this bug as critical for an important reason: I blasted my old firefox 0.8 install with this. I was lucky in that I have a backup of the directory I was able to restore. Others might not be so lucky.

Looks like the page has been updated. I'll resolve this to fixed, and try and verify it when I get home.

That page also mentions Mac OS X 10.1.x, but I think it's not true anymore (it needs at least Mac OS X 10.2.x).
