Mozilla pulls Firefox 16 due to security vulnerabilities

Mozilla has pulled Firefox 16 just hours after releasing it, citing security vulnerabilities.

Mozilla’s Firefox 16 web browser got its regular six-weekly update yesterday but the organization decided to pull the browser hours after the release. The outfit claimed it became aware of a security vulnerability in Firefox 16 and that updates are expected to ship at some point today.

Michael Coates, director of security assistance at Mozilla urged those who have downloaded Firefox 16 to revert back to Firefox 15.0.1. He said, “The vulnerability could allow a malicious site to potentially determine which websites users have visited and have access to the URL or URL parameters. At this time we have no indication that this vulnerability is currently being exploited in the wild.”

Mozilla’s recent move to silent, background updating means that some users will have upgraded to Firefox 16 without the need for going to Mozilla’s website and downloading the web browser. The software outfit has posted instructions for those wanting to downgrade to Firefox 15, but it also said users can stick with Firefox 16 and wait for the impending patch.

Mozilla’s decision to pull Firefox 16 hours after its release is an embarrassment for the organization, which is trying hard to compete against Google’s Chrome and Microsoft’s Internet Explorer.
