I think Firefox 13 releasenotes
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/13.0/releasenotes/
should include fixed item "Various security fixes" which link to:
https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox.html#firefox13

As we did for Firefox 12, 11 etc.
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/12.0/releasenotes/
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/11.0/releasenotes/

note:
We also fix the known-vulnerabilities page:
https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox.html
-<h3 id="firefox12">Fixed in Firefox 13</h3>
+<h3 id="firefox13">Fixed in Firefox 13</h3>
And please mention the sysreq change like the Thunderbird relnotes:
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/13.0/releasenotes/
> CHANGED: The minimum system requirements for Windows are now Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later.

This is unnecessary, as all affected users have been communicated to through an add-on hotfix, and the installer makes it clear if you try to perform the install on affected versions.

I'll add this when I get the chance - definitely not a critical change, as it's discoverable elsewhere.

The way this has been fixed is very confusing. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/13.0.1/releasenotes/ says "Various security fixes", but https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/13.0/releasenotes/ does not, even though all the security fixes were made in 13.0, not 13.0.1.

This has resulted in GFI rating 13.0.1 as a critical update, but not 13.0.
