Is something wrong with the package?

You didn't say what version you were trying to install.
However, I went to http://packages.debian.org/ , looked up the package
"mozilla-ctxextensions", and clicked on the link to give me its buglist.
There I saw that a bug has been filed about this, and that it should be
fixed at this point.  If you're trying to install 3.1.2004033001-2 --
the version which should be fixed, according to the bug report I found
by doing the above --  and you're getting this problem. you might
want to re-open the bug.


I was using 3.1.2004033001-1. The "-2" version that I just installed doesn't have that problem. Thanks a ton. (it was a mistake on my part for not specifying the version originally, I was under the belief that I was installing the most recent using dselect at that time.)

(Remove all underscores,_if any_, from my email address to get the correct one. Apologies for the inconvenience, but this is to reduce spam.)
