The Impact Mozilla community marketing challenge comes to a close on Friday October 24th, so this is your last opportunity to submit a one or two page idea summary. The purpose of this challenge is to help improve Firefox user retention. We know that tens of millions of people have downloaded Firefox but don’t continue to use it today. How do we get these past users back? How to we keep future users active once they’ve downloaded Firefox? If you have an idea about how we could solve this problem, we urge you to write it up and submit it through the Impact Mozilla website on or before this coming Friday.

Mobile Firefox (code-named Fennec) has reached its Milestone 9 release, which is also its first alpha. The team is calling this the “User Experience alpha”, and is targeted at the Nokia N800/N810 internet tablet. While great progress has been made on Windows Mobile, it is not ready for general use and is thus not included in this release. There are, however, new desktop versions of Fennec available, meaning you can now install the mobile browser on your Windows, OS X, or Linux desktop to see what all the fuss is about (and to help with testing and feedback, of course).
The Fennec Alpha 1 release notes include information about how to get started, how to install the browser, what’s new in this release, a list of known issues, and how to provide feedback. If you’ve ever been interested in getting involved with the Firefox Mobile project, now is a great time to install Fennec, watch the walkthrough video, and get started.
