There’s a new vulnerability in Mozilla / Firefox that allows arbitrary code execution, as reported in Slashdot.
You can patch Firefox by installing this extension. But if you’re like me and like to have the minimal number of extensions installed, you can do this:
- Open the Javscript Console
- Copy the following line-by-line into the textbox (hitting enter after each line):
You should see false being evaluated after running the last line.
Note: This only works for the current profile. If you have more than one profile, you should probably install the extension. And you shouldn’t need to restart the browser, the preference should be written to your prefs.js file when firefox quits (unless, of course, it crashes before that)
