Description Prasad J Pandit 2015-09-23 10:38:21 UTC
ecurity researcher Jordi Chancel reported that on Firefox for Android, when a
URL is pasted with an unknown protocol, such as secure: or httpz, the pasted
URL is shown in the addressbar but no navigation occurs. Other address bar
attributes present before this pasted URL is entered will continue to be
rendered. This could lead to potential spoofing by a malicious site.

This issue only affects Firefox for Android and does not affect Firefox on
OS X, Linux, or Windows operating systems.
