firefox regressions
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 20.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

USN-4599-1 and USN-4599-2 caused some minor regressions in Firefox.

Software Description:
- firefox: Mozilla Open Source web browser

Details:

USN-4599-1 and USN-4599-2 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox. The updates
introduced various minor regressions. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

 Multiple security issues were discovered in Firefox. If a user were
 tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could
 potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service, spoof the prompt
 for opening an external application, obtain sensitive information, or
execute
 arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 20.10:
  firefox                         82.0.2+build1-0ubuntu0.20.10.1

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  firefox                         82.0.2+build1-0ubuntu0.20.04.1

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  firefox                         82.0.2+build1-0ubuntu0.18.04.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  firefox                         82.0.2+build1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1

After a standard system update you need to restart Firefox to make
all the necessary changes.
