- CAN-2005-0232: "Fireflashing" Using plugins like Flash and the -moz-opacity filter it is possible to display the about:config site in a hidden frame or a new window. By making the user double-click at a specific screen position (e.g. using a DHTML game) you can silently toggle the status of boolean config parameters.
- CAN-2005-0233: "homograph attacks" / "IDN cloaking" Attackers may spoof hostnames by using translated hostname representation which look exactly the same as the original host, allowing phishing attacks or similar. We now show both IDN punycode and visible form of the hostname.
- CAN-2005-0255: Attackers could cause overflows or crashes in low memory situations.
- Additional Firefox bugfixes from the 1.0.1 release.
