Choose your own adventure, Firefox Marketplace, and more…

about:mozilla is a round-up of news and contribution opportunities. Here’s what’s happening this week.

Choose your own adventure with What Can I Do for Mozilla
What can I do for Mozilla?
We want to keep you connected to contribution opportunities that are right for you, so we created What Can I Do for Mozilla? to do just that.

Whether you’re interested in education, coding, documentation, or translation, this site will help you find the right place to get involved. Contribution can take on many forms, from teaching the web with Webmaker to writing code for Firefox.

The only question that remains is, what can you do for Mozilla?

Tell us what apps you want to see on the Firefox Marketplace

Our community has been building amazing apps for Firefox Marketplace using open web standards.

We recently launched this page to get your feedback on your favorite apps. We can feature single apps, a collection of apps, local apps, and more, so tell us about your favorites!

Want to build your own apps? Join MDN, the Firefox developer network. You can also learn html5, the newest standard of html, through the Mozilla Developer Network.

Firefox Affiliates 2.0 connects you with your favorite Mozilla products

In 2011, we launched the Firefox Affiliates program, which allows you to embed buttons on your personal website to share your love of Mozilla. This program allows you to make our products better and support our mission with just a few clicks.

This week, we’re proud to announce the new Firefox Affiliates’ new look! With almost 100,000 affiliates and growing, we can join together to promote innovation, opportunity and openness on the Internet.

If you aren’t a Firefox Affiliate yet, why don’t you become one today? If you already are, we are sure you will love the new platform as much as we do and invite others to become one as well.

  • Mozilla’s WebDev team tells you all about the new affiliates program on their blog.
  • See which affiliates are leading the charge with the new affiliates leaderboard.
  • Want to know what’s next for Firefox Affiliates? WebDev’s roadmap will tell you.

Featured Contributor: Peiyong Lin

A long time Firefox user, Peiyong Lin first contributed to Mozilla in October, 2013. As a coder, he has written a variety of patches for both Firefox and Servo and also provided translation and volunteer encouragement for his local community.

Peiyong is a programmer finishing up his degree at Sun Yat-sen University in Guandong Province in China and loves to dive into Firefox projects to grow with Mozilla.

Regarding his involvement, he says, “It’s very exciting when you know that people may have a better experience when they get access to the Internet… Mozilla has the power to shape the future of the Internet. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to get involved?”

Thank you for making the web a better place, Peiyong!
