  - Layout engine error which causes memory corruption and assertion failures.

  - Layout engine error related to 'nsCSSStyleSheet::GetOwnerNode', events and
    garage collection which triggers memory corruption.

  - Layout engine error through a splice of an array that contains 'non-set'
    elements which causes 'jsarray.cpp' to pass an incorrect argument to the
    'ResizeSlots' function which causes application crash.

  - Vectors related to js_DecompileValueGenerator, jsopcode.cpp,
    __defineSetter__ and watch which causes a segmentation fault.

  - Layout engine error in the vector related to 'gczeal'.

  - Double free vulnerability in Firefox via 'cloned XUL DOM elements' which
    were linked as a parent and child are not properly handled during garbage
    collection which causes arbitrary code execution.

  - 'nsIRDFService' in Firefox allows to bypass the same origin policy and
    read XML data through another domain by cross-domain redirect.

  - Error while decoding invisible characters when they are displayed in the
    location bar which causes incorrect address to be displayed in the URL bar
    and causes spoofing attacks.

  - Error in 'window.print' function which causes dos attack via nested calls
    in the 'onclick' attribute of an 'INPUT' element.");
