What version of Ubuntu is this? As I recall Lucid (I think) does not
include libstdc++.so.5 as it is a very old library... a compat library
is at this moment included in Maverick due in October. You can file a
backport request for this to Lucid.

Your RealPlayer plugin (helix) has been built against the older
libstdc++.s0.5 library rather than the newer libstdc++.so.6

For now remove your realplayer plugin either by package manager if you
installed it that way or by removing the file it is trying to load.

That looks like a non standard mozilla plugins location so might be
symlinked from the standard one...

Post to this list the output of: locate nphelix.so

Once the plugin is removed firefox will run normally.
