Description msiddiqu 2019-03-25 13:09:42 UTC
If a site is loaded over a HTTPS connection but loads a favicon resource over HTTP, the mixed content warning is not displayed to users. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 63.

Comment 2 Scott Gayou 2019-03-25 21:11:53 UTC
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 is running 60.6.0, which is presumably impacted.

Comment 6 Scott Gayou 2019-03-25 22:01:34 UTC
Reproduced this on the firefox version shipping with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. 5 and 6 were not tested, but I am guessing that they are vulnerable.
