What's New in SeaMonkey 2.53.9.1

SeaMonkey 2.53.9.1 contains (among other changes) the following major changes relative to SeaMonkey 2.53.9:

    Fix the lazy loading of images from some websites bug 1727967.
    Move certain font family defaults from serif to sans serif bug 1727982.

In addition, there is this tidbit:

#CVE-2021-38492: Navigating to `mk:` URL scheme could load Internet Explorer

Reporter
    James Lee
Impact
    moderate

Description

When delegating navigations to the operating system, Firefox would accept the mk scheme which might allow attackers to launch pages and execute scripts in Internet Explorer in unprivileged mode.
This bug only affects Firefox for Windows. Other operating systems are unaffected.

#CVE-2021-38493: Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 92, Firefox ESR 78.14 and Firefox ESR 91.1

Reporter
    Mozilla developers and community
Impact
    high

Description

Mozilla developers Tyson Smith and Gabriele Svelto reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 91 and Firefox ESR 78.13. 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.
