I reuploaded ubufox with a versioned depends on apturl

** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: ubufox
  the plugin finder wizard and apturl don't share the same proxy
  1. The short term solution to fix gutsy is to pass a --http-proxy
  host:port parameter to apturl if firefox has any proxy configured.
  2. The long term solution would be to all applications honour system
  proxy settings (aka gconf).
+ Testcase:
+  1.  ensure that your network setup does only allow access to the internet through http proxy
+  2.  configure the http proxy in firefox
+  3.  remove any flash player installed on your system
+  4. visit the multi content example page: http://people.ubuntu.com/~asac/pfs/test/2_multicontent.html
+  5. try to install the plugin through "install missing plugins ..."
+  6. see how apturl doesn' honour the http proxy settings and cannot get the packages.
