firefox crashes!!!

I updated firefox to on my fedora core box. To my surprise firefox is crashing with the following error message.

/usr/local/firefox/firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I checked in the /usr/lib directory and found that the concerned library is not there. It is really frustrating to know that firefox will not work with the latest libstdc++ library.

With some googling and my friend Subhash's advice of installing backward compatible libstdc++ library rpm, problem is sorted out and now firefox is working as usual. :-)

$ yum install compat-libstdc
This is the command which did trick for me.

make world open
