Classification: openSUSE

I found that Firefox would hang under OpenSUSE 12.3 and now 13.1 due to
missing libraries needed by /usr/lib64/firefox/plugin-container:

delder:~ # ldd /usr/lib64/firefox/plugin-container (0x00007fffaf5fe000) => not found => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007f679ea98000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f679e795000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f679e577000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f679e1c8000)
/lib64/ (0x00007f679eda0000) => /lib64/ (0x00007f679dfb1000)

This would happen with java, flash, and friends. A quick and dirty workaround
was to link them from /usr/lib64/firefox/:

ln -s /usr/lib64/firefox/ /usr/lib64/
ln -s /usr/lib64/firefox/ /usr/lib64/
ln -s /usr/lib64/firefox/ /usr/lib64/

After that, java and flash work and Firefox no longer freezes. This is likely
related (if not identical) to .

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Firefox
2. Visit a page with flash or java
Actual Results:
Browser hangs and console error is:

/usr/lib64/firefox/plugin-container: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Expected Results:
Working browser
