Description

So it should either be removed, or replaced with liberated package for iceweasel.

I wonder if the alternative can be just to add provides=("firefox") to the PKGBUILD of iceweasel. Not sure though about negative implications of this, and also if it's acceptable by Parabola standards for package name to mention the blacklisted package.

$ sudo pacman -S firefox-extension-privacybadger
resolving dependencies...
warning: cannot resolve "firefox", a dependency of "firefox-extension-privacybadger" 
:: The following package cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies:
      firefox-extension-privacybadger

$ pacman -Sg firefox-addons
firefox-addons firefox-extension-privacybadger

seeing as this is in a group named 'firefox-addons' there will presumably be more add-ons added soon

the simplest solution is to make 'iceweasel' to provides('firefox') or else all packages added to this group are going to need to be blacklisted or re-packaged for no reason other than changing the package name
