Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-web-photo

On running with Xvnc running as :
gnome-web-photo --mode=thumbnail http://yahoo.com /home/user/yahoo.png --display=:1 on Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04) server, I receive the error :

Failed to initialise gecko (rv = 80004005)!

I also encountered this problem, however after installing the package xulrunner-gnome-support:

    sudo apt-get install xulrunner-gnome-support

seems to solve the problem - looks like there are some dependencies missing from the deb config?

With xvfb, gnome-web-photo, and xulrunner-gnome-support installed I use the following command to capture a webpage:
xvfb-run --auto-servernum --server-args='-screen -, 1024x768x24' gnome-web-photo http://news.bbc.co.uk/ ~/bbcnews.png

May be but when I compiled it from its source, it compiled and ran
without any problem. It may be possible that the dependence is
redundant, and may have caused by the packaging prospect of Ubuntu.
