For some reason I cannot get either firefox or Thunderbird to start this is the error message I am getting
Code:
#firefox
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib64/firefox/libxul.so:
libEGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.

#thunderbird
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib64/thunderbird/libxul.so:
libEGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.


I have firefox 33.0-r1 installed and Thunderbird 31.2.0-r1 installed. Even though neither version has been marked stable in portage both of these packages used to work. I have a feeling the root of the problem is connected to the use of the proprietary Nvidia drivers that I am running (version 304.123) since the issue has to do with the libEGL.so.1 file. Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Hi!

libEGL.so.1 belongs to mesa package. Re-install it.
