I thought the title of this submission was slightly misleading. This is not a security vulnerability from within Firefox, it's a Firefox plugin to reveal security vulnerabilities in a wide range of websites.

To be fair that is exactly what I got out of the title and not that it was using Firefox vulnerabilities.

Sorry if it was misleading somehow, this is definitely not a vulnerability in Firefox. It's a Firefox extension that makes it easy to execute HTTP session hijacking attacks.

For what it's worth, I got that it was an extension or other Firefox tool. Your interpretation didn't occur to me.
