- A select event handler for XUL tree items can be called after the item is deleted. (MFSA 2010-17)

- An error exists in the way '<option>' elements are inserted into an XUL tree '<optgroup>' (MFSA 2010-18)

- An error exists in the implementation of the 'windows.navigator.plugins' object. (MFSA 2010-19)

- A browser applet can be used to turn a simple mouse click into a drag-and-drop action, potentially resulting in the unintended loading of resources in a user's browser. (MFSA 2010-20)

- The XMLHttpRequestSpy module in the Firebug add-on exposes an underlying chrome privilege escalation vulnerability. (MFSA 2010-21)
