Description of problem:
I installed google gadgets to compensate for the lack of various desktop widgets that used to show important system information that are now gone with the new gnome-shell.  However,  ggl-gtk fails with the following console message:

(ggl-gtk:2521): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: gst_debug_add_log_function: assertion `func != NULL' failed
Failed to find proper Gecko Runtime Environment!
