 Replying to [comment:37 boklm]:
 > Ah this is a good point, the browser will probably fail to restart on
 the systems where our version of `libstdc++` is required.

 Kathy and I agree that this change will cause the browser to fail to start
 after an update on systems that require our bundled libstdc++. A good
 catch by gk.

 > I am wondering if we could update `LD_LIBRARY_PATH` in the same way as
 the start script, during the update process, before restarting the

 The problem with this suggestion is that the updater that will be used is
 already on people's systems, so we cannot make changes to it :)

 In general, I think we are putting too many important things inside start-
 tor-browser. Or to put it another way: after an update the browser should
 be started the same way as when users start the browser. In an ideal
 world, ./firefox would do everything necessary. We could move all of the
 start-tor-browser code into a script named firefox and rename the actual
 binary to something else)... but I don't know what that would break.
