Bug Description

Firefox 9 was changed in a way that now having mozvoikko installed means one cannot spell-check in other languages than Finnish anymore.

Upstream released 2.0.1 that behaves correctly also in newest Firefoxes.

The Debian maintainer Heikki uploaded 2.0.1 which is now at http://cdn.debian.net/debian/pool/main/m/mozvoikko/mozvoikko_2.0.1-1.dsc - it is nowadays almost identical to Ubuntu packaging, sans s/Iceweasel/Firefox/ and apport support. A couple of lintian complaints were also fixed in the Debian packaging, ie. phrasing of the copyright information and specifying extra/oldlibs for the transitional package. You could rebase on Debian (to have 2.0.1-1ubuntu1) to look good in the statistics, but of course other than that there is no benefit since there is always the Iceweasel/Firefox difference.

Attached for general interest is a debian/ directories diff, except for changelog, for Debian 2.0.1 -> Ubuntu 2.0.
