3. Description:

Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser.

This update upgrades Firefox to version 52.5.1 ESR.

Security Fix(es):

* A privacy flaw was discovered in Firefox. In Private Browsing mode, a web
worker could write persistent data to IndexedDB, which was not cleared when
exiting and would persist across multiple sessions. A malicious website
could exploit the flaw to bypass private-browsing protections and uniquely
fingerprint visitors. (CVE-2017-7843)

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting this issue.
Upstream acknowledges Konark as the original reporter.

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to
take effect.
