Mozilla F1: finding a new home

Mozilla Labs

Welcome to the latest release of Mozilla F1. We have two new and exciting changes!

The Toolbar button has moved

With this latest release we’re moving the toolbar button beside the bookmark star icon, this is part of an effort to integrate better with Firefox.

F1 is now a restart-less add-on

Well, you had to restart one more time to get this feature, but it’s the last time. We swear! Future versions of F1 will be able to update themselves without requiring you to restart your browser. When a new version is ready it will download and update itself automatically (according to your preferences of course).

That’s pretty awesome!

If you’re interested in the technical details behind this change see the Firefox restart-less add-on documentation.

F1 Feedback

A slight change during this release is that we’ve also made a new home specifically for Mozilla F1 feedback. If you have an idea for improving F1 drop us a line or vote up the ideas you think are important. Thanks!

Firefox integration

We’ve started down a new road in the Mozilla F1 project. We have researched sharing on the web and learned a lot about how we can improve it. Our next challenge is to examine what a sharing service would look like if it were integrated into the browser. Not just and as an add-on but a part of your browsing experience.

So bear with us as we make a few changes, hopefully the good ones will be good and the bad ones will be quick!
