Hmm, you are right, the sogo-integrator-extention does install without
any problem, so it's only a problem with Lightning, and I can use
Lightning 1.0-b1 from Debian (called "iceowl-extention"), or the 1.0-b2
xpi from Mozilla.

Does this build service also create Debian packages?

There is only a 3.1.7 in "experimental". When an package is in
experimental this means there is something wrong.

But when it would be in unstable or testing it would not help really,
because I cannot ask from my users to run unstable. I could make a
backport, but then I had to backport it on every update for security.
