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

Update Information:

Updated firefox packages that fix several security issues are now available for
Fedora 9.    An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Firefox displayed
certain web content. A malicious web site could cause Firefox to crash, or
execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Firefox.
(CVE-2008-2785)    A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled certain command
line URLs. If another application passed Firefox a malformed URL, it could
result in Firefox executing local malicious content with chrome privileges.
(CVE-2008-2933)    Updated packages update Mozilla Firefox to upstream version
3.0.1 to address these flaws:    http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-
vulnerabilities/firefox30.html#firefox3.0.1    This update also contains
devhelp, epiphany, epiphany-extensions, and yelp packages rebuilt against new
Firefox / Gecko libraries.
