Gtk-Warning but program still works... I close konsole, program closes

What the hell does this mean?

[user12345@localhost user12345]$ mozilla

Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Ok... I recently set up my /home/user12345/.bash_profile PATH file, everything is fine there. So I opened the web browser mozilla by typing mozilla in the konsole. Mozilla opens fine and works fine but what does this Gtk-Warning mean? Am I missing the libgdk, but if I am why does mozilla work correctly? Also, whenever I close the konsole that I opened mozilla in, mozilla closes also, is there a way to correct this so I can close the konsole and mozilla will still be open?

An application is supposed to close when you close the terminal you opened it in. I don't know if there is a way to get around that, but it sounds like you are using KDE can't you just like add it to the dock or something? Also that warning is just telling you that file can't be opened because:

A.) It's not installed, just google for and you'll probably find an RPM for it
B.) It's in the wrong place, just ln -s the location of it to where it thinks it is
C.) Mozilla is being an ass :P

libgdk mustn't be crucial to the function, the pixbuf makes me think it has something to do with the graphics and look of it, so the worst it could do is make Mozilla ugly.

I installed, opened mozilla from the konsole, no error, said.. "yep that worked", exited konsole, and mozilla didn't exit
