firefox (14.0~b7+build1-0ubuntu2) quantal; urgency=low

  * Fix LP: #1013186 - install our vendor preferences as application
    defaults rather than GRE defaults, so that they are loaded after
    the upstream defaults again. The upstream defaults were also moved
    as part of the webapp runtime work (which has it's own application
    defaults)
    - update debian/firefox.install.in
    - update debian/firefox.links.in
