I've now been able to make a packaging that uses the signature
(META-INF/*) from the signed .xpi, even though it "builds" from the
release tarball instead. It fixes the not-signed warning on Firefox

However, unlike the original bug reported, for some reason if I use eg
Firefox Developer Edition (downloaded and extracted by the local user)
or a packaged Firefox 41 from
https://launchpad.net/~mozillateam/+archive/ubuntu/firefox-next/, I
get a) still the warning, b) actually even with the older mozvoikko
still the warning and ability to load the extension just as with the
signed/new mozvoikko.

I have to rest now but I'm pretty puzzled what has changed - did
Firefox upstream change? If yes, to for example still allow non-signed
extensions, it doesn't explain why would the signed extension show as

I still have no responses from the Ubuntu Firefox maintainer so I
don't have clues. It looked pretty clear / "done" when testing only
with Firefox 40...

The newly packaged mozvoikko is available for all Ubuntus currently at
