Indeed, for me, downloading
firefox_27.0+build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1_amd64.deb
[64bit ubuntu precise12.04 version], and extracting
to a temp directory ... and look in there ...
libxul.so DEFINITELY shows as a dynamic executable
under ldd check as above.

It has size 52787048 bytes dated 2014-01-13 14:26 ...

I.e. if you:-

ls -l /usr/lib/firefox/libxul.so

Do you or do you not get:-
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 52787048 2014-01-30 14:26 /usr/lib/firefox/libxul.so

??


Also, if you just list the files installed c/o "firefox"
package, that contain "xul" in name, i.e..:-

dpkg -L firefox | grep xul

Do you get just:-
/usr/lib/firefox/libxul.so


These may give helpful clues...
