In your case, nothing, because I track experimental as well as testing
and unstable.

  Installed: 1.4.99+1.5rc3.dfsg-2
  Candidate: 1.4.99+1.5rc3.dfsg-2
  Version table:
 *** 1.4.99+1.5rc3.dfsg-2 0
        300 http://http.us.debian.org unstable/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1.0.4-2sarge5
  Version table:
     1.4.99+1.5rc3.dfsg-1 0
          1 http://http.us.debian.org experimental/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I had printing problems with mozilla-firefox so tried firefox. 
Printing now works.

Note 1.4.99+1.5rc3.dfsg-2 for firefox
     1.4.99+1.5rc3.dfsg-1 0 for mozilla-firefox

Sorry if I confused anyone.


To be, or not to be, those are the parameters.
