Launch firefox as root and check. Not sure.

EDIT: I marked this thread as SOLVED, since the official packages are now available in both -current and 13.0 mirrors. Remember to upgrade your cairo package as well.

seems like Pat didn't upgrade pycairo too, but pycairo depends on cairo (and python of course)

Still no announcement for this on slackware.com/security, though it gets a mention in the stable changelogs.
Did a message go out to the security mailing list?
