Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web
page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running Firefox. (CVE-2013-0788)

A flaw was found in the way Same Origin Wrappers were implemented in
Firefox. A malicious site could use this flaw to bypass the same-origin
policy and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
Firefox. (CVE-2013-0795)

A flaw was found in the embedded WebGL library in Firefox. A web page
containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox.
Note: This issue only affected systems using the Intel Mesa graphics
drivers. (CVE-2013-0796)

An out-of-bounds write flaw was found in the embedded Cairo library in
Firefox. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running Firefox. (CVE-2013-0800)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled the JavaScript history
functions. A malicious site could cause a web page to be displayed that
has a baseURI pointing to a different site, allowing cross-site scripting
(XSS) and phishing attacks. (CVE-2013-0793)

After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to
take effect.
