I need to run a 32 bit version of Firefox but can't find a 32 bit version

I have unwound the 32 bit pkg for firefox but when I run I get: XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /opt/firefox/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Couldn't load XPCOM.

This library exists on my system but only in 64 bit form and I can't find a 32 bit version anywhere. I have a massive number of 32 bit libraries in /usr/lib32 but only show libgtk2 in that directory. The issue is I need a firefox that can run the Java Applets in Oracle Waveset.

Most basic detail needed is for what OS/release, as packages are built for specific releases (*so API/ABI's align and you don't get segfaults*).

Ubuntu does not support 32 bit (i386) hardware anymore. What exactly are you trying to do? Why do you need 32 bit Firefox?

As I said in the original post Oracle Waveset is no longer supported but has many of its configurator applications coded as Java applets. Currently I can only run an old IE browser on Windows 7 to administer our server. The security group in my organization is trying to get rid of Windows 7 on user's desktops. I have held them off by converting my Windows 7 box with P to V standalone converter and installed Ubuntu Jellyfish. Now I'd like to have a browser that runs Java applets directly on Jellyfish

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
