Why are you trying to compile from source rather that installing the Firefox package in our patches repository?  Installing VL packages is simple.  Compiling from source is not.

FYI...  When a problem you report in the forum is solved please change the topic heading on your original post to add [Solved] to the title. That will save time for those trying to do technical support.  Thanks!
