As reported in #738701, the firebug version currently in stable is not
compatible with iceweasel 24 from stable-security. I’d like you to
consider accepting the (rebuilt in Wheezy) version currently available
in Jessie and Sid, known to work with iceweasel 24.

I’m happy to provide an actual debdiff, but given how insanely huge
those 13MB are, I’ll just inform you of the diffstat last line as a

 453 files changed, 124169 insertions(+), 186106 deletions(-)

I’m sorry to ask for such a request again, but it seems like the less
ugly way to handle the new ESR-support of iceweasel in stable…

I’m happy to keep the 1.12.6-1 in Sid and Jessie as long as needed to
hopefully get as much testing as possible with the current iceweasel 24
(and will push new upstream releases to experimental only) if you
believe it’s worth it.

Please note that this new firebug version is not compatible with the
“old” iceweasel 17.

Thanks (a lot) in advance for considering.



P.-S.: X-D-CC to pkg-mozext-maintainers at l.a.d.o and sebastien at d.o who
may ask for similar (albeit hopefully less insanely huge) requests about
flashblock and sage-extension (for versions being in testing for a
longer time than this version of firebug is).
