When delegating navigations to the operating system, Firefox would accept the mk scheme which might allow attackers to launch pages and execute scripts in Internet Explorer in unprivileged mode. This bug only affects Firefox for Windows. Other operating systems are unaffected.
Mozilla developers Tyson Smith and Gabriele Svelto reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 91 and Firefox ESR 78.13. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort some of these could have been exploited to run arbitrary code.
