As with firebug, the issue I have here is that due to FTBFS on a few
architectures, stable is still likely to have iceweasel 17 after the
next point release.

Thus we either have to assume that most users have already upgraded to
24 from security and that the extension packages are most likely not
used on the missing architectures (ia64 and mips*), or we need to hold
off updating extensions that break with iceweasel 17 until we can get 24
in to stable.

Thoughts (from any party) welcome.
