--

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web
page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to terminate
unexpectedly or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges
of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2013-5590, CVE-2013-5597, CVE-2013-5599,
CVE-2013-5600, CVE-2013-5601, CVE-2013-5602)

It was found that the Firefox JavaScript engine incorrectly allocated
memory for certain functions. An attacker could combine this flaw with
other vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running Firefox. (CVE-2013-5595)

A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled certain Extensible Stylesheet
Language Transformations (XSLT) files. An attacker could combine this flaw
with other vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the privileges
of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2013-5604)

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