I used the following guide

To Install firefox.

I then used the following guide

and cpan install Mozrepl

To install mozrepl.

However when I run /usr/bin/firefox

I get bash: No Such file or directory

Running file firefox in /opt:

firefox: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.18, BuildID[sha1]=0x6e884103555b3e2bc8ecc62624d2d8123d61980e, stripped

uname -u:

Linux hostname 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.41-2+deb7u2 x86_64 GNU/Linux

file firefox in /usr/bin:

firefox: symbolic link to `/opt/firefox/firefox'

Everything seems alright except that there is a 32-bit 64-bit mismatch.

According to this guide

I should install ia32-libs, when i try I get the following:

ia32-libs : Depends: ia32-libs-i386 which is a virtual package.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

     Keep the following packages at their current version:
1)     ia32-libs [Not Installed]

What should I do?
