Critical Firefox update for CIMS systems

A security flaw was discovered in Firefox which potentially allowed malicious web content to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox.  A critical security patch to address this issue was released and pushed out to all CIMS systems this evening.

In order to begin using the patched version of Firefox, please restart Firefox by closing all instances of it and opening it again.
