From release notes on Firefox 3.5.2.
Quote
Mozilla add-on developer and community member Wladimir Palant reported broken functionality on pages that had a Link: HTTP header when an add-on was installed which implemented a Content Policy in JavaScript, such as AdBlock Plus or NoScript. Mozilla security researcher moz_bug_r_a4 demonstrated that the broken functionality was due to the window's global object receiving an incorrect security wrapper and that this issue could be used to execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges.
I find this is an interesting case since some Firefox addons which normally considered as security enhancements can do the exact opposite.   :'(

Indeed.  At least it's fixed in Fx 3.5.2.

By the way, Secunia has listed a Highly Critical unpatched vulnerability in the latest version of Fx3.0.x, i.e. Fx 3.0.13.  http://secunia.com/advisories/36088/
Might be a good idea for users that haven't updated to Fx 3.5.2 to do that now.

If one does not use firefox, is one at risk if one does not update?

I don't use Firefox so I don't worry.

As expected from Lifehacker, the taste is rather geeky.  Probably for their taste, JetAudio is more for mass market, if it's not from larger companies such as Apple.

Yes, it's all-round media player now...the name simply indicates that it has been around for quite a long time now.  I used to have it on my PC but nowadays I get rather "geekier."  ;)
