Package: iceweasel
Version: 29.0-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
I updated to iceweasel 29.0 . After I had installed it, adequate gave
me broken-symlink warning :-

adequate found packaging bugs

iceweasel: broken-symlink /usr/lib/iceweasel/browser/modules ->

and sure enough there is no share sub-directory under /usr/lib/iceweasel .

/usr/lib/iceweasel$ ls
application.ini  browser  firefox-bin  iceweasel  webapprt
webapprt-stub  xulrunner

I tried various options but couldn't get where (if anywhere) the
modules file is installed but wasn't successful.

I have removed the add-ons as they were not ueful in this aspect.
