Package: poppler-utils
Version: 0.71.0-3
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/pdfsig

Dear Maintainers,

when running pdfsig on a system, without Firefox, it segfaults:

$ pdfsig A_signed.pdf 
Digital Signature Info of: A_signed.pdf
Internal Error (0): couldn't find default Firefox Folder
Segmentation fault

Expected is that it does not segfault
or the installations gives a hint.

Proposed fix is to depend on or recommend the necessary
firefox packages.

Best Regards,
