When I do that, I get
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/len/Desktop/firefox/firefox/libxpcom.so:
libxul.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

The reason I am doing this is that I use a set of programs at lumosity.com to keep my mind alert. (They really work!) But they have a new version which I couldn't get to work under the old firefox. With the new firefox, they get closer to working, but they still don't quite work.
Unfortunately, although the games are really worth it, the site could offer better support. I have repeatedly told them the new lumosity doesn't work for me, but so far I have not gotten any response from them.)
