It asked something? How about it, it never asked me anything... :)
The problem is that *I* haven't tested it yet, I have just heard from two
other people on IRC that it works. Yes, yes, I know that is a very bad
practice, but the people WANT the new mozilla packages, and they want it.
They want it NOW :)

Maybe you had libgtk1.2 version < 1.2.3 installed? That was a common
problem in the last week or so, since the binary compatibility has been
broken in that version, and the package wasn't really ready...

Not master, pandora. Or Incoming. But I admit, there could be a problem
if it was the latest version...

One other problem could be having a ~/.mozilla/ directory from any other
previous version of mozilla (especially the ultra-old one from slink).
It causes mozilla to crash and burn, usually.

Did you experience coredumps later? If you happen to run into a segfault,
try deleting the ~/.mozilla dir, and then try again.
