Firefox Error ./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libxul.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

When double clicking nothing happens/it doesn't open and when executing as ./firefox-bin you get this error:

./firefox-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libxul.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

All the .so files reside within the directory of Firefox that you extract from the binary .tar.gz from Mozilla, it's just that your computer doesn't know/recognize where to look for them.

Solution:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/location/firefox
