Default ASLR to be mandatory for binary Firefox extensions

From http://h-online.com/-1443131

Quote:
A patch that was recently introduced to the Firefox repository is designed to make the browser more secure by forcing certain binary extensions to use ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomisation) under Windows. The Mozilla developers say that the change, which will prevent XPCOM (Cross Platform Component Object Module) component DLLs without ASLR from loading, should be included in Firefox 13 "if no unexpected problems arise".

The article only mentions Visual Studio. In case anyone wondered like I did, it appears that it's also possible to compile with ASLR with MinGW:
