Mozilla said that it plans to release Firefox 126.96.36.199 Feb. 7 or Feb. 8. The release will fix a high severity vulnerability.
The vulnerability, which was given a severity rating on Jan. 29, allows an attacker to swipe cookies and other critical data that can leak out of Firefox via flat files (add-ons). In a brief post, Mozilla said:
Since the security of our users is of utmost importance, the release schedule for Firefox 188.8.131.52 is being pushed up as much as possible, with a current release date estimated to be February 7th or 8th.
On Jan. 29, Mozilla security chief Window Snyder said the vulnerability will be patched with Firefox 184.108.40.206, which will be pushed out “shortly.”
