Mozilla Firefox contains many flaw that may allow a denial of service. When a major version of Firefox is released, the vendor includes a lengthy list of issues fixed. Among these are a wide variety of crashes in the browser, some that initially show signs of memory corruption or exploitable overflows. In many cases, the issues are not fully examined, or examined and found not to allow for privilege escalation. Due to the large number of crash conditions, many of which could be leveraged as a remote or context-dependent denial of service, they are all included in one entry, grouped by major version. The bug list attached to this entry provides a concise list of crash reports and other behavior that could represent DoS conditions. Note that not all of these are necessarily exploitable, even for a DoS, as the attack vector may be too severely limited. These issues were reported by a wide variety of people, too numerous to list in the creditee section.
