- Update Torbrowser patches to current maint-2.4 branch (567682b).
- Isolate DOM storage to first party URI, and enable DOM storage.
- Isolate DOM storage to first party URI, and enable DOM storage:
don't set anymore, and set Torbutton's
disable_domstorage to false.
- Isolate the image cache per url bar domain.
- Torbutton 1.5.2, and various prefs hacks to fix breakage:
· Add .saved version of the Torbutton preferences the TBB also sets.

· Set extensions.foxyproxy.socks_remote_dns to true.
Else, it overrides the various ways we set network.proxy.socks_remote_dns,
which in turn makes Torbutton think it should start in non-Tor mode.
· Also pass the TOR_SOCKS_* environment variables to iceweasel when
generating the profile: Torbutton behaves differently depending on
these variables, so we don't want the initial profile generation do be
done without them. In practice, this has no implication that we could
see right now, but better safe than sorry.
· Import all version overrides from the TBB prefs.
Else, the User-Agent sent in the HTTP headers is fine, but real
values leak with JavaScript, as demonstrated by ip-check's "Browser
type" test.
· Move a bunch of settings to user_pref(), that are not applied otherwise.
For some, this fixes a regression in 0.18~rc1.
For other, the bug was already present in Tails 0.17.2.
- HTTPS Everywhere 3.2.
- Update prefs to match the TBB's, fix bugs, and take advantage of the latest
Torbrowser patches:

these settings are not used in Torbutton anymore.
- Update unsafe browser prefs mangling accordingly.
- Move network.protocol-handler.warn-external.* to user_pref().
Else they're not applied.
These prefs are actually ignored by Firefox these days -- the TBB
design doc reads "They are set still anyway out of respect for the
dead". Let's go on doing the same.
- Update extensions.adblockplus.currentVersion.
- Fetch xul-ext-https-everywhere (3.2-2) and xul-ext-noscript (
from Debian unstable. They were uploaded there, and accordingly removed
from experimental.
* Bugfixes
- Fixed swapped filenames of tails-{reboot,shutdown}.desktop.

- Use 'Getting started...' as the homepage for Tails documentation button.
- Stop relying on the obsolete /live/image compatibility symlink.
- Disable audio preview in Nautilus.
- Wheezy was released => Squeeze is now oldstable.
- Pick Tor from regardless of the release name they
advertise. At some point we needed it, their APT repository still thought
that stable == Squeeze.
- Add Wheezy APT sources.
- Install Linux and related packages from Wheezy.
Debian sid just got Linux 3.8, and we don't want to switch to a new kernel
- Fetch laptop-mode-tools from Wheezy.
Wheezy has the version we've been installing in 0.18~rc1,
while a newer one was uploaded to sid in the meantime.
- Fetch a few packages from Wheezy instead of unstable.
Namely: spice-vdagent, libregexp-common-perl, macchanger, service-wrapper,
libservice-wrapper-java and libservice-wrapper-jni.
Wheezy has the versions we've been installing for a while, so let's
avoid having unstable push a newer one to us uselessly at some point.
Note that at the time of this writing, the versions in sid and in Wheezy
are the same, so this commit is effectively a no-op as of today: it is
merely a safeguard for the future.
* Localization
- Many translation updates all over the place.
