Both mozilla and mozilla-firefox provide the includes for the javascript interpreter. It would be nice if both packages provided 'js' or 'jsapi' or 'jslib' - the reason this comes up is because the gxine mozilla plugin now requires jslib - for now it will depend directly on firefox, as that seems more common.
This task depends upon

What we usually do for packages that also provide a mozilla plugin: make firefox a makedepends, it will work with any mozilla based browser then.It has no point installing firefox or mozilla when you want to view some movies in gxine.
