  Mozilla developers discovered several memory corruption bugs,
  which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2012-1940

  Abhishek Arya discovered a use-after-free problem when working
  with column layout with absolute positioning in a container that
  changes size, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2012-1947

  Abhishek Arya discovered a heap buffer overflow in utf16 to latin1

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
