Description

A use-after-free vulnerability can occur while re-computing layout for a "marquee" element during window resizing where the updated style object is freed while still in use. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55.
