    3. Many thanks to your excellent update to firefox 10 at fedora 13. But you wrote at April 10th, 2012, if I understood it right, that it is possible to install original tarball. I downloaded firefox 15 as tarball into my user-directory as recommended at:
      http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-firefox-linux

      But if I do so and I try to start at my user-folder I get this error:
      [[email protected] ~]$ ~/firefox/firefox
      XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/andreas/firefox/libxpcom.so:
      libxul.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
      Couldn’t load XPCOM.

      It seems, that parallel installation of root-firefox-10 and user-firefox-15 is not possible. Or is there any solution together with most actual xulrunner15 (for firefox-15).

      problem seems to be, that the wrong library is taken by user-firefox-15 (perhaps library of parallel installed root-firefox-10?)
