RHSA-2006:0200: firefox security update (Critical)  

Mozilla Firefox is an open source Web browser.
Igor Bukanov discovered a bug in the way Firefox's Javascript interpreter derefernces objects. If a user visits a malicious web page, Firefox could crash or execute arbitrary code as the user running Firefox. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the name CVE-2006-0292 to this issue.
moz_bug_r_a4 discovered a bug in Firefox's XULDocument.persist() function. A malicious web page could inject arbitrary RDF data into a user's localstore.rdf file, which can cause Firefox to execute arbitrary javascript when a user runs Firefox. (CVE-2006-0296)
A denial of service bug was found in the way Firefox saves history information. If a user visits a web page with a very long title, it is possible Firefox will crash or take a very long time the next time it is run. (CVE-2005-4134)
This update also fixes a bug when using XSLT to transform documents. Passing DOM Nodes as parameters to functions expecting an xsl:param could cause Firefox to throw an exception.
Users of Firefox are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains backported patches to correct these issues.

Quick Help

Unknown Tests
There is a hardcoded maximum limit for number of tests displayed for a definition. For a small number of oval definitions, about ~1% of all, hundreds of test have been defined. This causes the pages to grow in size, exceed even 1mb, and they are unsuitable for display in a web page. So they are not displayed.Please refer to the xml definition files if you really want to view them.
evr_string datatype
Represents epoch, version, and release number as a single version string
