https://issues.rpath.com/browse/RPL-1600

Description:
Previous versions of the firefox package are vulnerable to a flaw in
handling of "about:blank" windows. A malicious web server could exploit
this to steal sensitive information or modify contents of other open web
pages.

In addition, a malicious web server could execute helpers with arbitrary
arguments due to firefox's mishandling of certain types of characters when
launching external programs.
