Think twice before including packaged extensions for Iceweasel/Firefox. Since we currently diverge from Debian's default version, not all of them might be compatible with our iceweasel.

That said Debian started including newer Iceweasel in stable and it looks like we will able to get rid of that divergence.

openvpn-blacklist is also of dubious use, unless you specifically want it to be able to identify vulnerable OpenVPN shared keys as part of an intrusion test. That said the original problem is very old and very few such keys are still in use.

Thanks for the input. I'll omit the Iceweasel extensions and openvpn-blacklist for now. I haven't had any issues with the extensions so far but I'll get some more testing done before I add them.
