The requirements changed for this release--from the Mozilla page, the minimum requirements are

GNU/Linux
Software Requirements
Please note that GNU/Linux distributors may provide packages for your distribution which have different requirements.

Firefox will not run at all without the following libraries or packages:
GTK+ 3.4 or higher
GLib 2.22 or higher
Pango 1.14 or higher
X.Org 1.0 or higher (1.7 or higher is recommended)
libstdc++ 4.3 or higher
For optimal functionality, we recommend the following libraries or packages:
NetworkManager 0.7 or higher
DBus 1.0 or higher
HAL 0.5.8 or higher
GNOME 2.16 or higher

So we should switch the manual dependencies that are listed in the control file to the new libgtk 3 versions, away from the libgtk 2.0 we have now--that could wait for the next bugfix release, though. This will also make it incompatible with MEPIS 11/Squeeze, so it's a good idea we aren't doing those any longer.

Edit: It will also start using gtk 3 theming, which might look differerent from whatever your gtk 2 theme was.
