I wish I could help. I just finished updating the book with updates
to both Firefox and Thunderbird. I'm using GTK+-2.8.0. I'm having
no trouble with either. If fact, Thunderbird built yesterday is
sending this message.

BTW - Though the build methods differ between the BLFS way and the
Mozilla way, you end up with the *same exact thing* providing you
use the same configuration options. Note however, that Andrew
mentioned he is using a CVS pull from Mozilla and not a packaged
tar ball.

Make sure you delete all the existing Firefox-1.0.6 stuff in
/usr/include and /usr/lib before building Firefox again. I can't
imagine what the issue is.
