New mozilla-firefox packages are available for Slackware 13.37, 14.0,
and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mozilla-firefox-17.0.7esr-i486-1_slack14.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This release contains security fixes and improvements.
  For more information, see:
    http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefoxESR.html
  (* Security fix *)
  We had to switch to ESR here as well, as there's a problem running Firefox
  22.0 on Slackware 14.0 under KDE (crash when oxygen-gtk2 is installed).
  Forcing people to uninstall oxygen-gtk2 isn't really an option for a
  security fix, and upgrading to the latest oxygen-gtk2 did not help.
  It's possible that future Firefox/Thunderbird security updates will always
  come from the ESR branch.
