Mozilla developers identified and fixed several stability bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these crashes showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances, and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code.
Olli Pettay, Martijn Wargers, Justin Lebar, Jesse Ruderman, Ben Turner, Jonathan Kew and David Humphrey reported crashes in the browser engine that affected Firefox 3.6 and Firefox 3.5.
boardraider and stedenon reported a crash in the browser engine that affected Firefox 3.5 only.
