I understand that that all Debian users are not familiar with C,
hence the `even better' (that I understood as a possibility: `if you can do it (time+skill+...), please do it').
Anyway, good bug reports at the relevant place are better that complains at the wrong place.

I also understand that the issue with FireFox in Stable is recent (and came from security):
please give a chance to the involved maintainers to fix it.

The issue bother me too, BTW.
