(add testing or unstable deb-src lines to /etc/apt/sources.list)
(as root) apt-get update
apt-get source -b rpm
(as root) dpkg -i ../rpm*.deb

better still would be to do a search for "updated mozilla .deb" (i
believe jeff has even posted an answer to this to this list) and get a
real .deb instead of some dodgy rpm(*)

(* even if it wasn't dodgy before, it is after using alien)
