mozilla -- insecure permissions for some downloaded files


In a Mozilla bug report, Daniel Kleinsinger writes:

I was comparing treatment of attachments opened directly from emails on different platforms. I discovered that Linux builds save attachments in /tmp with world readable rights. This doesn't seem like a good thing. Couldn't someone else logged onto the same machine read your attachments?

This could expose the contents of downloaded files or email attachments to other users on a multi-user system.
