Description

browser.js in Mozilla Firefox 1.5.x before 1.5.0.10 and 2.x before 2.0.0.2, and SeaMonkey before 1.0.8 uses the requesting URI to identify child windows, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks by opening a blocked popup originating from a javascript: URI in combination with multiple frames having the same data: URI.
