Hi ,

I have upgraded FF version from firefox-esr: 24.3.0_2,1 -> 45.6.0_3,1 in
Free BSD 9.2 version using below command in my BSD ,

"pkg install firefox-esr".

After the upgrade I am not able to launch the firefox . When I type firefox
below error message is displayed in my terminal ,

"XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/local/lib/firefox/libxul.so:
Shared object "libpixman-1.so.30" not found, required by
Couldn't load XPCOM. "

Please find the below outputs :

Output from 'uname -a' :

FreeBSD pod1201-client11.ibesa 9.2-RELEASE FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE #0 r255898:

Please do let me know what needs to be done for it to work. I am new to BSD
as well.

Thanks & Regards ,
