Firefox Bug 1763632 (or: how to not fix a security issue)
« on: May 28, 2022, 03:53:30 pm »
I've just stumbled across this masterpiece of ignorance: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1763632

WIth a little bit DNS tweaking of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses you can hijack connections to specific websites when the victim has only IPv4 internet access.

nah... more than expected...   given the plethora of stuff piled in browsers...
an enormous JavaScript  engine to track adds and users...

I am surprised if that thing does not has  at least a dozen leaks flaws bugs.. direct ports...

That kind of think does not worry me anymore..

As long as I can preserve restore my tools and keep things working as they should.. (at least)

The rest...   same old miserable buz of before.. no surprises

HTTP/2 implementation flaw. Am not surprised. It’s too complicated.

This one doesn’t worry half as much as some of the architectural failures of Firefox and the platform ports.
