Description :
Mozilla Firefox is an open-source web browser, designed for standards
compliance, performance and portability.

Update Information:

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.

Igor Bukanov discovered a bug in the way Firefox's
JavaScript interpreter dereferences objects. If a user
visits a malicious web page, Firefox could crash or execute
arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name
CVE-2006-0292 to this issue.

moz_bug_r_a4 discovered a bug in Firefox's
XULDocument.persist() function. A malicious web page could
inject arbitrary RDF data into a user's localstore.rdf file,
which can cause Firefox to execute arbitrary JavaScript when
a user runs Firefox. (CVE-2006-0296)

A denial of service bug was found in the way Firefox saves
history information. If a user visits a web page with a very
long title, it is possible Firefox will crash or take a very
long time to start the next time it is run. (CVE-2005-4134)
