A bug has been found in the installer, which accidentally removes /etc/apt/sources.list.d/aptosid.list if adding non-free Firmwares gets selected. Not selecting this option avoids this bug and allows adapting /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list afterwards, in order to install firmware or other non-free packages.
