USN149-2 : mozilla-firefox regressions

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
mozilla-firefox regressions

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- mozilla-firefox
- mozilla-firefox-dev
- mozilla-firefox-dom-inspector
- mozilla-firefox-gnome-support


Description :

USN-149-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in the Firefox web browser.
Unfortunately that update introduced a lot of regressions, especially
when using extensions, so another update is necessary. The new
packages ship Firefox version 1.0.6 which should now work well with
most extensions (one known exception is the package
"mozilla-tabextensions").

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- mozilla-firefox-1.0.6-0ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- mozilla-firefox-dev-1.0.6-0ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- mozilla-firefox-dom-inspector-1.0.6-0ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- mozilla-firefox-gnome-support-1.0.6-0ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
