You're not lucky, with the 1.0 package that just got uploaded to
unstable, your package is useless, 'cause support for
/var/lib/mozilla-firefox/chrome.d has been dropped.

Anyways, I'd suggest to make a multi-binary package so that it produces
several mozilla-firefox-locale-* packages.

As for how to make the thing work with new firefox package, I'm working
on an HTML version of what I sent to extensions packages maintainers 2
days ago about the new scheme. I'll send the URL here when it's done.
In the meanwhile, you can still guess what's going on by taking a look
at extensions and locales available in
