Fedora Core 3 : firefox-1.0.1-1.3.1 (2005-182)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes several security vulnerabilities in Firefox 1.0. It
is recommended that all users update to Firefox 1.0.1.

Additionally, this update backports several fixes from rawhide.

This update enables pango font rendering by default.

This update enables smooth scrolling by default. On slower machines,
this may cause scrolling to lag. If this is the case for you, you may
disable smooth scrolling by going to Edit>Preferences>Advanced and
uncheck 'Use smooth scrolling'.

This update also fixes the issue with downloads going to the user's
home directory instead of the desktop, as expected.

See full changelog below for more.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
