Description Doran Moppert 2018-09-05 07:15:11 UTC
The displayed addressbar URL can be spoofed on Firefox for Android using a `javascript:` URI in concert with JavaScript to insert text before the loaded domain name, scrolling the loaded domain out of view to the right. This can lead to user confusion. 

*This vulnerability only affects Firefox for Android.*
