Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2011:1268 :

Updated firefox packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, and 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact.

Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox.

The RHSA-2011:1242 Firefox update rendered HTTPS certificates signed by a certain Certificate Authority (CA) as untrusted, but made an exception for a select few. This update removes that exception, rendering every HTTPS certificate signed by that CA as untrusted. (BZ#735483)

All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 3.6.22. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
