Bug#930949: firefox: Firefox .desktop file should not be absolute

Salvo Tomaselli-3
Package: firefox
Version: 67.0.4-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
I use firejail.

Because firefox.desktop points directly to the binary, rather than just calling
firefox from the path, I can't symlink firefox to firejail in /usr/local/bin
like I do for everything else, because it won't work if I open it from a menu.

It would be nice to fix the .desktop file to just execute "firefox %u" instead
so that people who use firejail can use it without having to fix the .desktop
file after every upgrade.
