D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed to read machine uuid... - SOLVED

In CentOS 6.4, I got this error trying to run firefox (after I set up X11 forwarding):
$ firefox &
[2] 2647
process 2647: D-Bus library appears to be incorrectly set up; failed to read machine uuid: Failed to open "/var/lib/dbus/machine-id": No such file or directory
See the manual page for dbus-uuidgen to correct this issue.
D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace

This was corrected by running the following command as root:
# dbus-uuidgen > /var/lib/dbus/machine-id

Verfication:
$ firefox &

Firefox should now startup properly without errors.
