[slackware-security] mozilla-firefox (SSA:2013-180-01)

 

New mozilla-firefox packages are available for Slackware 13.37, 14.0,

and -current to fix security issues.

 

 

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:

+--------------------------+

patches/packages/mozilla-firefox-17.0.7esr-i486-1_slack14.0.txz: Upgraded.

This release contains security fixes and improvements.

For more information, see:

http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefoxESR.html

(* Security fix *)

We had to switch to ESR here as well, as there's a problem running Firefox

22.0 on Slackware 14.0 under KDE (crash when oxygen-gtk2 is installed).

Forcing people to uninstall oxygen-gtk2 isn't really an option for a

security fix, and upgrading to the latest oxygen-gtk2 did not help.

It's possible that future Firefox/Thunderbird security updates will always

come from the ESR branch.
