It is Gtk+ 2.10 at least thus 2.10 or higher.

Not Xfce related, as it breaks on an inexistent function call from Gtk+.
Either Eclipse should use another version probably outside /cs/local, or it
should be rebuilt.

Same here. When running Firefox however, as firefox is just a bourne shell
script, you should be able to get the pid of it (ps ax) and attach to it later
again with gdb (gdb /path/to/real/firefox-bin <pid>).
