A Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory reports:

A bug in javascript's regular expression string replacement when using an anonymous function as the replacement argument allows a malicious script to capture blocks of memory allocated to the browser. A web site could capture data and transmit it to a server without user interaction or knowledge.

Workaround: Disable Javascript
