Description
Mozilla Firefox before 48.0 and Firefox ESR 45.x before 45.3 preserve the
network connection used for favicon resource retrieval after the associated
browser window is closed, which makes it easier for remote web servers to
track users by observing network traffic from multiple IP addresses.
