For a successful execution of this attack, attackers are required to trick victims into downloading and opening a malicious HTML file on the Firefox web browser and click on a fake button to trigger the exploit.
Since I rarely download html files, my risk is very low. I wonder what the fake button looks like.

Rather than save web pages as html, I tend to save bookmarks of the web pages.
