There are a couple of things I forgot to add to my message earlier.
Firstly, I apologize for suggesting such an ugly solution to this
problem. I hoped that by making this known, at least people would know
what was causing the problem and that someone who understood Debian
packaging much better than I would be able to find a more elegant
solution that would get the Mozilla apps to load the gtk modules from
where Debian keeps them based on packaging policy. Another thing I was
thinking about today is the possibility of speech from Orca in the
Light-dm greeter to provide an accessible log in experience. I know that
Ubuntu has a talking Light-dm so it is possible that it might not take
too much work to enable this functionality in Debian. I was planning on
downloading a version of ubuntu and trying to figure out how they are
doing this but I figured I would post this here in case anyone has any
idea of how this is working.
