I'd like to remember everyone that it was probably discontinued because
in the end it turned to be a terrible idea. Tails wrote a statement
about it: <https://tails.boum.org/doc/encryption_and_privacy/FireGPG_susceptible_to_devastating_attacks/>
Although an extension whose sole purpose would be to verify GnuPG
signatures would not have the problem and seems like a good idea.
At least, shipping it through addons.mozilla.org give the user some
basic trust path.
