Hi

I have had confirmation back from Mozilla staff.

This was an issue in Firefox for Android, but it was fixed on 12th September. The advisory for this can be seen at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/advisories/mfsa2023-40/

It doesn't contain libwebp, so it should be safe.

You the link you sent says it got fixed in 117.0.1, but play store says 12 september there was 117.1.0, is it correct or did something with the updated break for me?
