I understand Your concerns, but being open-source, FIrefox gives a chance for people to find vulnerabilities like this one, with the ability to patch it.
"Our exploit will target Firefox Beta 53 on Linux. It is important to note that the release version of Firefox was never affected by this bug since shared array buffers are disabled up to Firefox 52 and disabled by default on Firefox 53 due to this bug."
IMO on the long term, events like these contribute to security generally speaking.

That is exactly why its pretty much a race you cant garentee the person with good intentions will find it first.

well shared array buffers disabled by default so unless ur full retard and turn it on u should manage not to fuck up too bad

they should fix the exploit and then do a release which makes your homepage a giant picture of TriHex because reasons
