Mozilla developer Frédéric Wang reported an issue affecting
accessibility tools on OS X. This occurs when when an accessibility tool requests the
index of a table row through the
NSAccessibilityIndexAttribute value. This
was caused by an error in how HTML tables are exposed to accessibility tools, which can
result in a potentially exploitable crash.
This issue only affects OS X systems and does not affect Windows, Linux, or Android installations.
