Package: iceweasel
Version: 24.5.0esr-1~deb7u1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

According to the package changelog
gstreamer0.10 support was disabled in iceweasel 24.5.0esr-1. The reason given
makes sense, but removing the feature without replacement is a regression, as
some people (myself included) were using it.

According to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=806917 there is a
possible fix: Build iceweasel with --enable-gstreamer=1.0 to use gstreamer1.0
If the feature is stable enough and available in Mozilla release sources,
please provide future Debian packages with gstreamer support reenabled.

Thank you.
