#CVE-2021-29951: Mozilla Maintenance Service could have been started or stopped by domain users

Reporter James Forshaw
Impact moderate
Description

The Mozilla Maintenance Service granted SERVICE_START access to BUILTIN|Users which, in a domain network, grants normal remote users access to start or stop the service. This could be used to prevent the browser update service from operating (if an attacker spammed the 'Stop' command); but also exposed attack surface in the maintenance service.
Note: This issue only affected Windows operating systems older than Win 10 build 1709. Other operating systems are unaffected.

ff v89.0

1. june 21

New

  • Say hello to a fresh new Firefox, designed to get you where you want to go even faster. We’ve redesigned and modernized the core experience to be cleaner, more inviting, and easier to use.

    Beginning in 89, you’ll notice a number of changes, including:

    Simplified browser chrome and toolbar: Less frequently used items removed to focus on the most important navigation items.

    Clear, streamlined menus: Re-organized and prioritized menu content according to usage. Updated labels and removed iconography.

    Updated prompts: Infobars, panels, and modals have a cleaner design and clearer language.

    Updated prompts screenshot

    Inspired tab design: Floating tabs neatly contain information and surface cues when you need them, like visual indicators for audio controls. The rounded design of the active tab supports focus and signals the ability to easily move the tab as needed.

    Fewer interruptions: Reduced number of alerts and messages, so you can browse with fewer distractions.

    Cohesive, calmer visuals: Lighter iconography, a refined color palette, and more consistent styling throughout.

    This release also includes enhancements to our privacy offerings:

  • For macOS users, we're introducing the elastic overscroll effect known from many other applications. A gentle bouncing animation will indicate that you reached the end of the page.

    In addition, we added support for smart zoom. Double-tap with two fingers on your trackpad, or with a single finger on your Magic Mouse, to zoom the content below your cursor into focus.

  • Native context menus: Context menus on macOS are now native and support Dark Mode.

Fixed

  • Colors in Firefox on macOS will no longer be saturated on wide gamut displays, untagged images are properly treated as sRGB, and colors in images tagged as sRGB will now match CSS colors.

  • In full screen mode on macOS, moving your mouse to the top of the screen will no longer hide your tabs behind the system menu bar.

  • Also in full screen mode on macOS, it is now possible to hide the browser toolbars for a fully immersive full screen experience. This brings macOS in line with Windows and Linux.

  • Various stability and security fixes.

Changed

  • Introducing a non-native implementation of web form controls, which delivers a new modern design and some improvements to page load performance. Watch for layout bugs in web pages that make assumptions about the dimensions or styling of form controls.

  • The screenshots feature is available in the right-click context menu. You can also add a screenshots shortcut to your toolbar. Learn more.

  • Better keyboard navigation for editable BoxModel properties in the Inspector panel

#CVE-2021-29967: Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 89 and Firefox ESR 78.11

Reporter Mozilla developers and community
Impact high
Description

Mozilla developers Gabriele Svelto, Anny Gakhokidze, Alexandru Michis, Christian Holler reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 88 and Firefox ESR 78.10. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort some of these could have been exploited to run arbitrary code.
