  - Use-after-free in the IME State Manager code.

  - combination of invoking full screen mode and navigating backwards in
    history could, in some circumstances, cause a hang or crash due to a
    timing dependent use-after-free pointer reference.

  - Several methods of a feature used for testing (DOMWindowUtils) are not
    protected by existing security checks, allowing these methods to be called
    through script by web pages.

  - An error when GetProperty function is invoked through JSAPI, security
    checking can be bypassed when getting cross-origin properties.

  - An issue with spoofing of the location property.

  - Use-after-free, buffer overflow, and out of bounds read issues.

  - The location property can be accessed by binary plugins through
    top.location and top can be shadowed by Object.define Property as well.
    This can allow for possible XSS attacks through plugins.

  - several memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in mozilla products.");
