Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Mozilla Firefox. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can cause the target application to crash. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system. Mozilla Thunderbird is affected.

An invalid cast may occur in nsImageGeometryMixin() [CVE-2016-5272].

A use-after-free memory error may occur in mozilla::a11y::DocAccessible::ProcessInvalidationList() [CVE-2016-5276].

A use-after-free memory error may occur in nsFrameManager::CaptureFrameState() [CVE-2016-5274].

A use-after-free memory error may occur in nsRefreshDriver::Tick() [CVE-2016-5277].

A buffer overflow may occur in nsBMPEncoder::AddImageFrame() [CVE-2016-5278].

A use-after-free memory error may occur in mozilla::nsTextNodeDirectionalityMap::RemoveElementFromMap() [CVE-2016-5280].

A use-after-free memory error may occur in DOMSVGLength() [CVE-2016-5281].

Various other errors may occur [CVE-2016-5256, CVE-2016-5257].

A remote user can cause the target user's application to crash.

An out-of-bounds memory read error may occur in mozilla::net::IsValidReferrerPolicy() [CVE-2016-2827].

An error may occur in mozilla::a11y::HyperTextAccessible::GetChildOffset() [CVE-2016-5273].

A remote user can view potentially sensitive information on the target system.

An out-of-bounds read error may occur in PropertyProvider::GetSpacingInternal() [CVE-2016-5271].

A full path disclosure may occur after a drag and drop operation [CVE-2016-5279].

A favicon can be loaded via non-whiletlisted protocols [CVE-2016-5282].

A cross-origin 'iframe src' tag fragment timing attack may disclose data [CVE-2016-5283].

Certificate pinning for add-on updates is not effective [CVE-2016-5284]. A remote user with an incorrectly issued certificate for a Mozilla web site can send arbitrary add-on updates to the target user. Users that have installed add-ons are affected.
