This suggests that something needs to be changed to support multi-arch
properly. I would suggest starting with a Debian bug report against Mozilla.
Note that the x86_64-linux-gnu is the multi-arch directory for the libraries
under x86-64.

Also, why copy the file instead of just creating a symbolic link?

At least you've identified what isn't loading; it's now time for a bug report
so that a relevant package maintainer can work with you to have this fixed.
