Bugzilla:
675087: CVE-2011-0051 Mozilla recursive eval call causes confirm dialog to evaluate to true (MFSA 2011-02)

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.17 and 3.6.x before 3.6.14, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.12, does not properly handle certain recursive eval calls, which makes it easier for remote attackers to force a user to respond positively to a dialog question, as demonstrated by a question about granting privileges.
