Actually, no. In that case the in-tree cairo is built and used
-- but only for SVG and Canvas objects. cairo _is_ used through
Gtk objects if your Gtk version is new enough.

tells me that actually not the cairo used by Firefox is the problem
(which would be cairo 1.0.2 for Firefox 2.0.0.x) but the cairo that
is used by Gtk, because everything above this in the call stack is
just related to the file-picker (not the download manager) that
Firefox tries to show. Can you open the Gtk file-picker from other
Gtk-based programs?


P.S.: Please CC the cairo list when replying, I alone have very
little knowledge of how cairo interacts with other stuff on Unix...
