one of my fileservers running (a minimal) ubuntu breezy has libc and
libc-i686 packages too, so that's not unusual

i suggest you create a new user in firefox, starting firefox with :
mozilla-firefox -ProfileManager

and see whether that new firefox-user has the same problems with that

grtjs, albi
gpg-key: lynx -dump http://scii.nl/~albi/gpg.asc | gpg --import
