The latest firefox major update in stable broke adblock-plus (#829267).
The latest version of adblock-plus in Debian (2.7.3) is known to work
with it, and has been in Sid and Stretch for a while. Unfortunately, the
debdiff against the version is Jessie is pretty insane (611 files
changed, 21429 insertions(+), 6423 deletions(-) while ignoring all
spaces and blank lines, as well as most renamed and moved files)…

I’m simply attaching the debdiff against Sid (adding a changelog entry).
The package, rebuild in a Jessie chroot, has been successfully tested in

This is the last of the four currently RC-buggy packages in stable from
the xul-ext-* team I’m aware of. Hopefully no other should pop up
(Firefox has been in Jessie for a little while now). Thanks in advance
for accepting them for the next point release.
