Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

1) Hardy Heron
2) 3.0~b5+nobinonly-0ubuntu2

ubufox is included in the tasks for ubuntu-desktop, edubuntu-desktop and xubuntu-desktop but not for kubuntu-desktop (since Firefox isn't installed by default). Additionally, Firefox 3.0 does not suggest or recommend ubufox which can result in bug 199460 - Firefox trying to use Adobe's installer for Flash which is broken. This could result in more bug reports which would be nice to avoid.

Looking at firefox-2, it recommends ubufox.
