In an Ubuntu 10.10 32bit VM with firefox 10.0 (binary extracted to /opt/firefox) I get 'failed to create drawable' when I successfully launch firefox via CLI


I have a 32bit Ubuntu 10.10 (maverick) and as I want this version to stay the same I've edited /etc/sources.list as follows:
[CODE] edit unsupported use leading space to preformat &/or < b r /> & nowiki tags ~J99

# Required
deb maverick main restricted universe multiverse
deb maverick-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb maverick-security main restricted universe multiverse
# Optional
deb maverick-backports main restricted universe multiverse
deb maverick universe


All fine untill here... I also needed my firefox to be in the 10.0 version and to do so, I've fetched manually the tar.bz2 package from firefox' page dedicated to old releases; uninstalled the old one using 'Software Manager' and installed this new package by giving the following commands to the CLI: [CODE]

root@server: tar -xjvf firefox-10.0.tar.bz2 -C /opt
root@server: ln -s /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox


I can launch firefox from the CLI and it opens, I can browse the web, etc...

My problem is that an apparent error/warning message is sent to the stdout saying «failed to create drawable»

Do you know what it is and how to correct it?

Furthermore, I would like to add this app to the graphical menu in «Applications > Internet» section/menu.

Thank you very much for the help

Yours sincerely, sebastiaopburnay
