Some info please. What distro are you using? How did you install FFx, from a package? from a binary tarball from the FFx website? Is there no FFx executable in your /usr/bin folder? (Usually it's called "firefox")? It's just that /usr/lib seems a strange place to run an executable from.
cheers,
jdk

1. Is there a file called /usr/bin/firefox on your system?
2. If there is try running that and see if the error goes away.
Is there no entry for Firefox on your menus? Strange.
cheers,
jdk

Can you run this command from a terminal and post the results.
Code:
ls -l /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0

Ok, that's quite a recent version of the gtk-x11 library (I only have 1200.11 installed). Maybe the Firefox that came with your slackwear is too old? You might try installing a more recent version of Firefox. The most recent version is 3.0.6 and you have 3.0.4 installed. So maybe there's a version mismatch between the libgtk-x11 and that version of Firefox. This is just a guess.
Cheers,
jdk
