libstdc++.so.5: No such file or directory on FC6

I have to use the old FC6 instead of the latest Fedora distro.
The existing thunderbird 1.5.0.12-3 is working fine.
I want to upgrade thunderbird to the latest version.
How to do that?
This is my procedure.
I downloaded thunderbird-2.0.0.19.tar.gz and untar it to /usr/local/bin/thunderbird.

$ /usr/local/bin/thunderbird/thunderbird
/usr/local/bin/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

# rpm -qa libstdc++
libstdc++-4.1.1-30

How do I install libstdc++.so.5 for only thunderbird so that libstdc++-4.1.1-30 is still the default?

libstdc++.so.5 is installed now.

$ /usr/local/bin/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin
/usr/local/bin/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libmozjs.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I google but did not find anything.

I'm also running FC6 and looked into upgrading thunderbird by enabling the development repos with yum, as can be seen here:

I haven't tried to do it with the tarball, and haven't had much experience installing things that way, but you may need to update some dependencies, which it seems is a bad idea in this case.

I've had minimal experience installing using tarballs, so what I said about dependencies may be rubbish (perhaps someone who knows more can comment), however it was that fact that's stopped me from updating.

I know this hasn't really solved your problem, but it might be of some use to you.
