Fedora Core 3 : firefox-1.0.1-1.3.1 (2005-182)
High Nessus Plugin ID 19622
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected firefox and / or firefox-debuginfo packages.
