This is a FAQ.

When you update mozilla you often need to remove your old .mozilla
directory (save the bookmarks.html if you like).  They are not very
careful to maintain backwards compatibility.

mozilla is also VERY sensitive to being built with consistent library
interfaces - if you have stale headers lying around on the system, or
old/mismatched versions of the dependencies, it can become confused in
this fashion.
