Dear FreeBSD port maintainer:

As part of an ongoing effort to reduce the number of problems in the
FreeBSD ports system, we periodically notify users about
ports that are marked as "forbidden" in their Makefiles.  Often,
these ports are so marked due to security concerns, such as known
exploits.

An overview of each port, including errors seen on the build farm,
is included below.

portname:           www/firefox
forbidden because:  too many security issues

build errors:       none.

If this problem is one that you are already aware of, please accept
our apologies and ignore this message.  On the other hand, if you no
longer wish to maintain this port (or ports), please reply with a
message stating that, and accept our thanks for your efforts in the
past.

Thanks for your efforts to help improve FreeBSD.
