- Previously, passwords saved in the Firefox browser and encrypted by a master password were erased when Firefox was exited. This update ensures that NSS files used to decrypt stored login data are handled correctly. As a result, the affected passwords are no longer lost after restarting Firefox.

Update the affected firefox and / or firefox-debuginfo packages.
