Bug Description

firefox-globalmenu is an empty transitional package that was needed on Ubuntu 14.04. Now that trusty is EOL, it can be safely removed (see https://bazaar.launchpad.net/~mozillateam/firefox/firefox-trunk.head/view/head:/debian/control.in#L132).

NOTE TO SRU TEAM: Please do not release this package without consulting first. This is a security update pushed via -proposed to get a bit more testing. Will be released via it's own processes.

In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!
