This flaw reported by Mozilla http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2006/mfsa2006-59.html 
is still unfixed in the latest Firefox 2.0 final.

This exploit works in Firefox 2.0 Final: http://lcamtuf.coredump.cx/ffoxdie.html 

"Jonathan Watt and Michal Zalewski independently reported timing dependent testcases that trigger crashes at the same place during text display. We have seen no demonstration that these crashes could be reliably exploited, but they do show evidence of memory corruption so we presume they could be. 
Note: Thunderbird shares the browser engine with Firefox and could be vulnerable if JavaScript were to be enabled in mail. This is not the default setting and we strongly discourage users from enabling JavaScript in mail."

TUCoPS is optimized to look best in Firefox® on a widescreen monitor (1440x900 or better).
