Bug Description

Hello,

Some of the packages (mostly Mozilla extensions and plugins) depend on both firefox and firefox-2, or just on firefox-2. Regarding planned Firefox 2 removal from the archives, we should change the dependencies by removing optional firefox-2 dependency, or investigating if there is an update, respectively.

Looking at the extensions listed, bookmarkftp is un-supported from
upstream and will hopefully be removed from Jaunty archives, I filed it
to be removed from Intrepid during dev cycle however no one looked into
it. I am going to close that task since it doesnt work with >=3.0
