Mozilla & Gecko clones Security researchers that carried out a code analysis of popular open source browser Firefox using automated tools, have discovered scores of potential defects and security vulnerabilities despite coming to the conclusion that the software was generally well written. A former Mozilla developer has criticised the methodology of the analysis and said it provides little help in unearthing real security bugs.

Problems that can readily be found can readily be fixed.

Hahaha. So that's why it took so long for Mozilla to even admit there is a memory leak let alone fix it? Stop living in the dream world. Go to bugzilla. Some bugs are 3+ years old, but only because the developers for some reason or another, don't want to fix them, they're not bugs.
