[opensuse] OT - Mozilla Firefox browser upgrade taken offline due to vulnerability
The latest version of Mozilla's Firefox browser has been taken offline after a security vulnerability was discovered.

Users who had upgraded to version 16 were advised to downgrade to the previous safe release until Firefox developers released a fix.

The vulnerability allowed "a malicious site to potentially determine which websites users have visited", Mozilla said.

The non-profit company said that only a "limited number of users are affected".

The download had been taken offline within a day of its initial release, the organisation's UK spokesman said.

Some users were upgraded automatically to the new version, but are now being advised to uninstall the updates.
