Firefox Also Vulnerable To .ANI Exploits

If you thought you were safe from the animated cursor flaw because you use Firefox, think again. According to the VP of engineering for Mozilla, Firefox users are also vulnerable to animated cursor exploits on unpatched Windows PCs.

There had been some initial confusion as to whether the bug in Microsoft's Windows operating systems would affect Mozilla's open source Firefox browser. And now it appears it does, said Mike Schroepfer, VP of engineering for Mozilla.
