Description

USN-1463-2 fixed a bug in Unity 2D exposed by a recent Firefox update. It was discovered that the issue was only partially fixed on Ubuntu 11.04. When Thunderbird was started from the launcher, Thunderbird was still unable to obtain pointer grabs under certain conditions. This update fixes the problem.

USN-1463-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox. The Firefox update exposed a bug in Unity 2D which resulted in Firefox being unable to obtain pointer grabs in order to open popup menus. This update fixes the problem.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
