header (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-4521: The ConvertDialogOptions function in
Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before

possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown
vectors (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-4522: The nsUnicodeToUTF8::GetMaxLength
function in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR
38.x before 38.3 might allowed remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (memory corruption and application
crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via
unknown vectors, related to an 'overflow (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-4500: Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in
the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and
Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 allowed remote attackers to

to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service
(memory corruption and application crash) via crafted
(1) OpenGL or (2) WebGL content (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-7179: The
VertexBufferInterface::reserveVertexSpace function in
libGLES in ANGLE, as used in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0
and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 on Windows, incorrectly

via a crafted VP9 file (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-4517: NetworkUtils.cpp in Mozilla Firefox
before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 might
allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(memory corruption and application crash) or possibly
have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors
(bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-4505: updater.exe in Mozilla Firefox before
41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3 on Windows allowed
local users to write to arbitrary files by conducting a

discover a redirect's target URL via crafted JavaScript
code that executes after a drag-and-drop action of an
image into a TEXTBOX element (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-7180: The ReadbackResultWriterD3D11::Run
function in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR
38.x before 38.3 misinterprets the return value of a
function call, which might allowed remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (memory corruption and
application crash) or possibly have unspecified other
impact via unknown vectors (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-7176: The AnimationThread function in Mozilla
Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3
used an incorrect argument to the sscanf function, which
might allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (stack-based buffer overflow and application
crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via
unknown vectors (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-7177: The InitTextures function in Mozilla
Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x before 38.3
might allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (memory corruption and application crash) or
possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown
vectors (bsc#947003).

- CVE-2015-7174: The nsAttrAndChildArray::GrowBy function
in Mozilla Firefox before 41.0 and Firefox ESR 38.x
before 38.3 might allowed remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (memory corruption and application
crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via
unknown vectors, related to an 'overflow (bsc#947003).
