firefox (15.0+build1-0ubuntu0.12.04.1) precise-security; urgency=low

  * New upstream stable release (FIREFOX_15_0_BUILD1)
    - see LP: #1041620 for USN information

  * Update globalmenu-extension to 3.4
    + Drop the edit UI workarounds
    + Fixes for LP: #1035305 - Crash when switching apps back to Firefox
      with Firebug installed
      - Keep the menu we export in sync with the document tree all of the
        time, rather than only when the menus are on screen. The HUD likes to
        open submenus without opening any of its ancestors, which can result in
        us handling events on menu nodes that are no longer in a document
        if an ancestor responds to a bubbled-up event by removing its
      - Ensure we always null check the result of nsIDocument::GetCurrentDoc
    + When tearing down a menu, make sure that we empty out our DbusmenuMenuitem
      in case the parent reuses that item for another menu. Fixes a memory leak
      and an issue where Firebug menu items are duplicated indefinitely each
      time a menu is opened
    + Fixes for LP: #1025011 - HUD search crashes Firefox when Firebug
      is installed
      - Provide our own binding for menupopup nodes which derives from the
        default binding and makes the "state" property work as if there
        were a frame
      - Make all menu nodes reference counted, and hold a strong ref when
        dispatching events, in case the event results in the removal of menu
    + Fix LP: #813775 - Hitting an assertion in dbusmenu
    + Fix LP: #861565 - No buttons in the "Show All Bookmarks" dialog
    + Fix LP: #775305 - An empty menu appears when FFChrome is installed
    + Add a small delay when opening the menu with the keyboard, so that
      the additional items are added before the menu appears. Fixes an
      issue where keyboard focus isn't on the first item when opening the
      history menu with the keyboard
  * Add Acholi to the locale blacklist
  * Separate the package name from the application name in various places.
    This enables us to change the package name without having to modify the
    application or packaging (eg, to allow us to provide official branded
    versions of Firefox ESR using the package name "firefox-esr")
