We (Vasudev and I) are currently trying to look into this issue.

Do you have a clue how the xulrunner binary got replaced in Debian unstable?

Kiwix gets launches via

xulrunner-<version> $BINARY_DIR/../lib/kiwix/application.ini "$@"

But I cannot find anything that replaces the xulrunner-<version>  
executable in unstable at the moment.

Any idea??? Or did this transition break kiwix completely (it has been  
RC buggy for a while, but we were about to get it fixed two weeks  
before the xulrunner packages got removed from unstable).
