Ubuntu 5.04 : mozilla-firefox regressions (USN-149-2)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

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 :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High
