Another typo - this should have been /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/ . wiki updated.

No, it appears for some reason NEWS.gz is different on armel and amd64 package,
and thus multi-arch: same install is refused. Usually using gzip -n
fixes that, but this package
was already doing it. This appears to be a case of:
I've uploaded a new libtasn which doesn't compress NEWS file as
workaround. I'm also updating
the firefox in repository to 8.0, the demo was based on 7.0. I'll
update when all the changes
