From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; 

Description of problem:
Need 32-bit browser to run 32-bit binary plugins.  Mozilla 1.7 
installs fine, but cannot install FireFox 1.0 due to dependency 
on /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5

Note /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.5 is installed as part of the compat-
libstdc++ package, but not the 32-bit version

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download 32-bit FireFox binary
2. run its install package: ./firefox-installer
3. observe error

Actual Results:  ./firefox-installer-bin: error while loading shared 
libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: no such 
file or directory

Expected Results:  successfully installed

Additional info:

low severity due to workaround avail. (install 32-bit mozilla 1.7)

/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5 is also installed as part of compat-libstdc++-33 rpm.
