potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
Firefox. (CVE-2011-2982)

A dangling pointer flaw was found in the Firefox Scalable Vector Graphics

Document Object Model (DOM) element. A web page containing malicious
content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-2378)

containing malicious JavaScript could cause Firefox to execute that
JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2011-2981)

It was found that a malicious web page could execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running Firefox if the user dropped a tab onto
