[Pkg-mozext-maintainers] Bug#738701: iceweasel 24 from stable-security breaks firebug and vice versa

Package: xul-ext-firebug
Version: 1.9.2~b2-1
Severity: grave

Since upgrading to iceweasel 24.3.0esr-1~deb7u1 firebug cannot be
enabled anymore:

* F12 is dead
* Neither the beetle button nor the arrow next to it give a response
* In the Tools menu there is a "firebug.Firebug" entry, but no submenu
  is behind it.

It also causes breakage in iceweasel itself. The context menu is messed
up, it gives a long list of options¹, and none of them work. Seems like
the menu integration code of firebug has gone awry as well.

The menu is back to normal if firebug is disabled.

All this has been reproduced on two machines (i386, amd64) running
stable, and with an empty $HOME/.mozilla

¹ Normally, the options shown are dependent on which object you
right-clicked on. Here I see the options for all kinds of objects listed
one after the other.
