From MFSA 2008-42:
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.

David Maciejak and Drew Yao reported crashes in graphics rendering which
only affected Firefox 3.
