    The latest security updates of Mozilla Thunderbird introduced a
    regression that led to a disfunctional attachment panel which warrants
    a correction to fix this issue.  For reference please find below the
    original advisory text:
    
      Several security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla and
      derived products such as Mozilla Thunderbird.  The Common
      Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
      vulnerabilities:
    
      CVE-2006-2779
    
          Mozilla team members discovered several crashes during testing of
          the browser engine showing evidence of memory corruption which may
          also lead to the execution of arbitrary code.  The last bit of
          this problem will be corrected with the next update.  You can
          prevent any trouble by disabling Javascript.  [MFSA-2006-32]
    
      CVE-2006-3805
    
          The Javascript engine might allow remote attackers to execute
          arbitrary code.  [MFSA-2006-50]
    
      CVE-2006-3806
    
          Multiple integer overflows in the Javascript engine might allow
          remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.  [MFSA-2006-50]
    
      CVE-2006-3807
    
          Specially crafted Javascript allows remote attackers to execute
          arbitrary code.  [MFSA-2006-51]
    
      CVE-2006-3808
    
          Remote AutoConfig (PAC) servers could execute code with elevated
          privileges via a specially crafted PAC script.  [MFSA-2006-52]
    
      CVE-2006-3809
    
          Scripts with the UniversalBrowserRead privilege could gain
          UniversalXPConnect privileges and possibly execute code or obtain
          sensitive data.  [MFSA-2006-53]
    
      CVE-2006-3810
    
          A cross-site scripting vulnerability allows remote attackers to
          inject arbitrary web script or HTML.  [MFSA-2006-54]
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.2-2.sarge1.0.8b.2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
