Description

Mozilla community member Ms2ger reported a crash due to an invalid cast when using the instanceof operator on certain types of JavaScript objects. This can lead to a potentially exploitable crash.

In general these flaws cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird and SeaMonkey products because scripting is disabled, but are potentially a risk in browser or browser-like contexts in those products.
