It a known problem that some components fail to load if apps are
started with the nsXULStub binary. That's why we have the wrapper script
in /usr/pkg/bin/firefox. I don't know if it's a NetBSD specific
problem or something wrong with the packaging. A possible workaround
would be to change the value that gets written to GConf.
