If you are insteresting to fix the warnings and other stuff, then can you  
please submit those patches to the Mozilla bugzilla?

I'll trying to merge with your new change tomorrow or next day. I haven't  
check as I have arrived home this evening.

BTW: I also fixed Liferea with your firefox patch to get Liferea compiles.  
The rest GNOME 2.11.x can compile your firefox just fine so far.
