[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:


(* 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.




Where to find the new packages:



Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab

(http://osuosl.org) for donating FTP and rsync hosting

to the Slackware project! :-)


Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for

additional mirror sites near you.
