No, I don't use prism
however, the error there is also in a new profile or empty profile
I cannot reproduce it with a recent build on Ubuntu 8.10. Which Linux version are you using?

Dao, have you already seen this issue?

I using Slackware -current, with kde4.2.4
It works if you *remove* brand.dtd from preferences.xul?

What output do you get when loading <view-source:chrome://branding/locale/brand.dtd>?

Output is

So they inject this code. That makes this bug invalid but please inform the author of the theme so it can be fixed. Thanks!
