Mozilla.org has announced
a simple workaround
that closes the Firefox International Domain
Name (IDN) security vulnerability.
"On September 9, the Mozilla team released a configuration change which, as a temporary measure to work around this problem, disables IDN in the browser. IDN functionality will be restored in a future product update. The fix is either a manual configuration change or a small download which will make this configuration change for the user.
