Firefox has just celebrated its 50 millionth download
The Mozilla Foundation has said it is "working aggressively" to fix two flaws in its open source Firefox browser.
The vulnerabilities, reported on Saturday, were identified as "very critical", but no cases had been reported of them being exploited.

I suggest updating to V1.0.3

Except 1.0.3 is also affected by it

Users are advised to disable JavaScript and the software installation option within Firefox pending a more comprehensive fix from the Mozilla Foundation.
