[slackware-security]  mozilla-firefox (SSA:2019-169-02)

New mozilla-firefox packages are available for Slackware 14.2 and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mozilla-firefox-60.7.1esr-i686-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  This release contains a security fix and improvements. The patched flaw is
  considered critical, and could be used to run attacker code and install
  software, requiring no user interaction beyond normal browsing.
