Public bug reported:

I tried to install Firefox by Konsole.
"sudo apt-get install firefox"

Then I got this error:
trying to overwrite '/usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop', which is also in package kubuntu-firefox-installer 13.04ubuntu2

Seemingly this error have been reported already back 2 years ago, but it got fixed then.
Now it's bugged again.

- I can't remove kubuntu-firefox-installer
- I can't install firefox
- I can't fix the dependency hell
- APT is totally stuck because of the kubuntu-firefox-installer file.

Basically if you try this, you break your system. (well, it's Beta 2.)
