    only 364 days out!

    OSX build for today 20050206 will not start at all on my Mac OSX 10.3.7.

    First time, it asked me what Profile to use — I thought I’d accidentally started it twice and exited. After that it hasn’t loaded at all. Restart doesn’t help, fresh download doesn’t help, removing my Profile entirely doesn’t help. I copied in an older Firefox from backup (0128) and that works fine. I’m going back to yesterday’s build.

    Are one of the security holes that were fixed the URL spoofing one listed at http://www.shmoo.com/idn/ ?

  4. Fragbert Says:


    This build does not appear to address that security issue.

  5. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    No. Homograph attacks are https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=279099. There was a long discussion about how to handle homograph attacks on the security group mailing list after that bug was filed.

  6. DLR Says:

    Hmm, don’t have authorisation to view that bug. I’m guessing it’s a not fixed security bug?

  7. Max Thrane Says:

    Hm, I can see URI posted by Jesse with no problems. And it seems that devs haven’t fixed the problem yet.

  8. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    DLR, try again. The bug for the homograph attack was marked as security-sensitive yesterday when I posted the URL, but now it’s public.

  9. Jeff Walden Says:

    Both the security bugs mentioned are public now.

  10. alanjstr Says:

    Hey, I don’t see you CC’d on bug 280603. I definitely think it is burning-edge worthy.

  11. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    I listed it as “fixed” in my previous post. Did I screw up?

  12. MB Says:

    It wasn’t actually fixed, and thus reopened.
