Description

Mozilla Foundation reports :

Fixes for security problems in the JavaScript engine described in MFSA 2008-15 introduced a stability problem, where some users experienced crashes during JavaScript garbage collection. This is being fixed primarily to address stability concerns. We have no demonstration that this particular crash is exploitable but are issuing this advisory because some crashes of this type have been shown to be exploitable in the past.
