Fixed with Anthony's patch [1], which also replaces Seamonkey and Firefox, and pushed to repository.

Blacklisted in rev. 268 (metad) and rev. 35 (debderiver).

Postponed for future freeing.

Liferea is a news feed reader. It has an option to open articles in an external browser. Some of the browsers it suggests are non-free software or suggest non-free software.

Steps to reproduce:
In the menu bar click Tools -> Preferences -> Browser. There you see a dropdown box with a selection of Web browsers. It includes Netscape and Opera (non-free) and Mozilla and Firefox (suggest non-free).

Expected behavior:
List only installed browsers or at least only free ones.

Confirmed for metad and Parkes.
