Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL

A flaw was found in the processing of malformed web content. A web
page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or,

(CVE-2009-1313)

For technical details regarding this flaw, refer to the Mozilla security
advisory for Firefox 3.0.10. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories
in the References section of this errata.

All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
Firefox version 3.0.10, which corrects this issue. After installing the
update, Firefox must be restarted for the change to take effect.
