Article: New Firefox Updates Eliminate Major Security Flaw

eEeek reports: "Mozilla on Feb. 23 released updated versions of the Firefox browser, v1.5.0.10 and v2.0.0.2, for Windows, Mac and Linux, which include the fix for a major security flaw. ... The 'location.hostname' vulnerability potentially allowed hackers to tamper with authentication cookies for third-party sites, manipulating how Web sites are displayed and how they operate, Mozilla said."

If you have not upgraded your version of the Firefox browser, I would strongly suggest that you do it now.
