Well, guess who feels foolish?
Apparently, to fully load the gtk libraries, you have to open the x menu, and MyDSL->Update_to_GTK2. I used to know that. I would have noticed, but I'm more of a keyboard person.
After you do this, firefox-1.5.uci works okay. I still think that if a third-party library is required, it should be in the info file, and I am still disappointed that this error got past testing and into uci.
Also, my firefox-18.104.22.168.uci works too. In fact, I am using DSL2.3 and my new extension to post this. Expect an updated firefox in myDSL soon. No more being vulnerable to known security flaws. At least for a month or two.
Unfortunately, firefox-bin keeps giving me an error, saying "Gdk-Warning" Error converting from UTF-8 to STRING. Conversion from character set UTF-8 to ISO-8859-1' is not supported. Does anyone know how to fix that? I don't think I got that error with firefox-1.5.uci, just my new firefox-22.214.171.124.uci.
