I apologize for this. Bad practice on my part for grabbing the debian/postinst from ubuntu-docs and not changing that name. I am working on a patch right now that can hopefully get uploaded very soon to fix this issue.

This patch fixes this issue. I have tested it with ubuntu-docs installed, edubuntu-docs installed, and ubuntu and edubuntu docs installed. This package will change your default firefox-startpage to a Kubuntu one, but can be fixed by running:

sudo update-alternatives --config firefox-homepage

Select the ubuntu or edubuntu one accordingly. There is no way around this one really, but you will be happy to know that if you uninstall this package after this update, it will revert back to your old page.

I apologize again everyone for putting out 7.04-2 before testing it fully. I learned my lesson from this one. I appreciate your patience. Thanks!
