(CVE-2009-1302, CVE-2009-1303, CVE-2009-1304, CVE-2009-1305)
Several flaws were found in the way malformed web content was
processed. A web page containing malicious content could execute
misleading data to a user, or stealing sensitive information such as
login credentials. (CVE-2009-0652, CVE-2009-1306, CVE-2009-1307,
CVE-2009-1308, CVE-2009-1309, CVE-2009-1310, CVE-2009-1312)
A flaw was found in the way Firefox saved certain web pages to a local
file. If a user saved the inner frame of a web page containing POST
data, the POST data could be revealed to the inner frame, possibly
surrendering sensitive information such as login credentials.
After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes
to take effect.
