    A patch is expected shortly, but in the meantime users can protect themselves by switching off JavaScript.

A fix is on the way already, and Mozilla has added, "users who have not added sites to their "software whitelists" should not be at risk".

I still feel more secure with Firefox than IE...given their history of correcting flaws much quicker than Microsoft.
