Removed already.

Let me tell why I didn't fix this: fixing it in an individual package is not
the right solution. The extra license file is being incorporated when the
original xpi is repacked.

In debian's case, since we already provide the relevant data (by policy) in
/usr/share/doc, the proper fix is not to fix it by special cases, but to
change the xpi repacker, instead, to filter those files/not install them
when unpacked or something similar.

So, that's the rationale for me not fixing it: a cleaner solution is needed.
