Implemented and proposed as a subpackage to mozilla-filesystem at:

Any extension, which BR: mozilla-build then has the correct requires,
if it's installed correctly.

"Correctly" means here, without symlinks, like I currently do in
noscript and other extensions are doing it too right now.

I'd propose to finally have mozilla-noscript, which pulls all
subpackages, e.g. firefox-noscript and seahorse-noscript etc, and only
those subpackages require firefox OR seahorse.
