Description

Mozilla developer Justin Dolske discovered that malicious sites, upon a user saving his or her password, could inject newlines into Firefox's password store and corrupt saved passwords for other sites.

Workaround

Do not ask Firefox to save passwords on untrusted sites until a version containing these fixes can be installed.
