Mozilla fixes Firefox and Thunderbird flaw

SeaMonkey also affected by JavaScript bug

Mozilla has release a fix for a Javascript bug in Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey.

According to Mozilla a security problem in the JavaScript engine introduced a stability problem with the applications, where some users experienced crashes during JavaScript garbage collection. Mozilla said the fix is being issued to mainly address the stability issues and made a point of saying that there is no evidence that the issue is exploitable.

The issue has been fixed in Firefox 2.0.0.14, Thunderbird 2.0.0.14 and SeaMonkey 1.1.10. The applications are available for download from the developer's website.
