I would guess that you are having the same problem that I am facing with
the python bindings, which was introduced by courmisch in
42b58e873a9d91c3a1f2665a01a56525f44313d5 (Do not link plugins against
libvlccore explicitly).

You can try to preload the libvlc.so lib:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libvlc.so mozilla
to see if it solves your problem. I was trying to find an appropriate
solution, but maybe simply reverting the commit may be the simplest.
