firefox vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 19.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


A X-Frame-Options bypass was discovered in Firefox.

Software Description:
- firefox: Mozilla Open Source web browser


It was discovered that X-Frame-Options could be bypassed in some
circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted
website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct
clickjacking attacks.

package versions:

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  firefox                         78.0.2+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1

all the necessary changes.
