Overview | Winner Selection | Prizes | Judges | Rules


AMO_Australis_contest_650x250 copyMay 13, 2014 – The winners are announced!

Firefox is about to get more beautiful, streamlined, and customizable than ever before, and we’re challenging you to create add-ons that look and feel great in it.

Between March 11 – April 15, 2014, create add-ons that take full advantage of the new design, which opens up new customization opportunities and streamlines the add-on experience in your browser. A panel of judges will pick one winner and two runners-up from each prize category.

All winners will receive Firefox OS phones, and the first-prize winners in each category will also receive a collection of Mozilla gear.

Contest Categories

  • Best overall add-on – an add-on that best makes use of the new Australis features, like the new toolbar widgets and tab appearance.
  • Best complete theme – a complete theme that most creatively alters the look and feel of Australis.
  • Best bookmark add-on – an innovative bookmarking add-on that works well with the Australis theme.

How to Enter

  1. Create or update an add-on
  2. Submit it to AMO (addons.mozilla.org) for approval
  3. Fill out the entry form and include a link to your add-on. Submissions are closed now.

    I’ve just installed FF 29. For some mind-boggling reason I no longer have a one-click route to the sidebar. Not only that, the customisation page looks like it may have been designed by a five year old – huge boxes filling the screen for no apparent reason. And can I read the text in them? No. If the text is too long we get an ellipsis, and NO tool tips. In my vain search for the bookmarks sidebar button, I found myself dragging buttons to the toolbar, JUST TO SEE WHAT THEY WERE! What a complete fuck-up =[
