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 denial of service conditions on the target system. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system.

On Firefox for Android, a remote user can cause audio data to be loaded in violation of service policy via HTTP Live Streaming [CVE-2018-12391].

A remote user can cause a crash with nested event loops [CVE-2018-12392].

A remote user can cause an integer overflow during Unicode conversion while loading JavaScript [CVE-2018-12393]. 64-bit builds are not affected.

A remote user can cause a WebExtension bypass of domain restrictions through header rewriting [CVE-2018-12395].

A remote user can cause a WebExtension to run disallowed scripts [CVE-2018-12396].

A remote user can cause a missing WebExtension warning prompt when requesting local file access [CVE-2018-12397].

A remote user can inject stylesheets and bypass Content Security Policy (CSP) in some special resource URLs [CVE-2018-12398].

A remote user can spoof the protocol registration notification bar [CVE-2018-12399].

On Firefox for Android, favicons are cached in private browsing mode [CVE-2018-12400].

A remote user can cause a denial of service attack when special resource URL parsing [CVE-2018-12401].

A remote user can cause SameSite cookies to leak when explicitly saved [CVE-2018-12402].

A remote user can cause a mixed content warning to be not displayed when an HTTPS page loads a favicon via HTTP [CVE-2018-12403].

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system [CVE-2018-12388, CVE-2018-12389, CVE-2018-12390].

Impact:   A remote user can create content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user can cause denial of service conditions.

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