In an effort to improve the level of Firefox’s visual and interactive polish, Alex Faaborg will be posting a short list of top-priority user experience bugs every Monday morning between now and the Firefox 3.1 launch. He writes, “These bugs will involve fixing some rough areas of Firefox 3′s UI, landing icons that we meant to land before shipping, and trying to make sure every last pixel is perfect.” The team could use some help getting these bugs finished up and closed off, so if you have the time and are interested in helping out, you are encouraged to dive in and get started. Additionally, if there are polish issues that drive you nuts, Alex asks that you file bugs for those and leave a note in the comments of his post.

Madhava Enros and Sean Martell have been working on creating a default theme for the Fennec web browser (“Fennec” is the code name for Mobile Firefox). Madhava writes, “We’re trying for something that nods back in the direction of Firefox on the desktop while still striking out in a direction that’s appropriate for a small-screen finger-directed device. [Sean]‘s posted some recent work to his blog, and he’ll be posting more there as we go. This is an effort still very much in progress, so please jump in with your suggestions. There’s a Fennec UI discussion thread ripe for contribution.” For more information and some mockups of the theme, see Madhava’s blog post.
