2. Contributing Factors
These issues can occur in the following releases:
1. Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 do not ship Firefox and therefore are not affected by these issues.
2. Firefox 2.x is no longer shipped with OpenSolaris starting with snv_95 which includes Firefox 3.x.
There are no predictable symptoms that would indicate the described issues have been exploited.
For the following Mozilla Foundation Security Advisories there is a workaround of disabling Java Script:

For Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory MFSA 2008-35, the following is a workaround:
This attack only works if the user is using another internet-connected application with Firefox not running. Using Firefox, or making sure it is at least running, prevents this attack.
For Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory MFSA 2008-40, the following is a workaround:
1. Open Options/Preferences dialog
2. Go to the "Content" tab
4. UN-check the "Move or resize existing windows" box.
