Looks like it's just a missing dep on qml-module-ubuntu-thumbnailer0.1

webbrowser-app is in main, and qml-module-ubuntu-thumbnailer0.1 is in universe, so we can’t depend on it.

It’s not just Ubuntu.Thumbnailer, it’s also the import of Ubuntu.Content in DownloadsPage.qml. That one needs to be made conditional too.

When I start webbrowser-app on a fresh xenial desktop install, I’m getting the following error messages:

    file:///usr/share/webbrowser-app/webbrowser/webbrowser-app.qml:41 Type Browser unavailable
    file:///usr/share/webbrowser-app/webbrowser/Browser.qml:930 Type DownloadsPage unavailable
    file:///usr/share/webbrowser-app/webbrowser/DownloadsPage.qml:23 module "Ubuntu.Thumbnailer" is not installed
    file:///usr/share/webbrowser-app/webbrowser/DownloadsPage.qml:24 module "Ubuntu.Content" is not installed

The branch linked to that bug fixes only half of the problem.
