I do mean /usr/share/mozilla/extensions. /usr/share/mozilla-extensions
is where I did put these shared files in my mozilla extensions packages,
and where symlinks in /usr/lib/$app/extensions point to.
/usr/share/mozilla/extensions is a new location that new upstream looks at.
That means iceweasel 3.0 does look into /usr/share/mozilla/extensions
too, and doesn't need a link in /usr/lib/iceweasel/extensions if the
shared files are in /usr/share/mozilla/extensions. It also means iceape
2 and icedove 3, when they will be available, will also look there.
Note that directory names in /usr/share/mozilla/extensions must contain
a '@' character (usually, that would be $extension@mozilla.org) or be a
uuid between curly braces ("{}").
