Would anyone working on the Mozilla project care to add dustin's password

If you'd bothered to report this to mozilla.org, via bugzilla, rather
than just going straight to bugtraq[*], you would probably have found
bug 83038, which was fixed for mozilla 0.9.2. (0.9.2 froze tonight for
final QA before release.)
People using Mozilla < 1.0 should probably be aware that there are bugs
remaining, and some of those bugs may affect the security of the
application. I don't think there are any serious ones left outstanding,
but I may not just "serious" like you do, and there may yet be some
[*] Not that I have a problem with people mailing bugtraq to let people
know what they should watch for, but if someone else _hadn't_ reported
this to bugzilla, we might not have fixed it in time for 0.9.2. I
assume that's what you want, and that you weren't just posting to be
clever at our expense.
