Senior Firefox Community Support Lead – it’s you we’re looking for!

Lionel Richie - Hello?

  • Ever loved a piece of software so much that you learned everything you
    could about it and helped others with it?
  • Ever coordinated an online community? Especially one around supporting users?
  • Ever measured and tweaked a website’s content so that more folks could find it and learn from it?

Got 2 out of 3 of the above?

Then work with me (since Firefox works
closely with my area: Firefox for Android and in the future iOS via cloud services
like Sync) and the rest of my colleagues on the fab
Mozilla User Success team (especially my fantastic Firefox savvy colleagues over at User Advocacy).

And super extra bonus: you’ll also work with our
fantastic community like all Mozilla employees AND Firefox product
management, marketing and engineering.

Questions? Email me rtanglao AT mozilla.com or click on the Senior Firefox Community Support Lead link and start the process of applying!

What’s happening with Firefox for Android Support July 25, 2013

Hello world. There’s a lot happening in the world of Firefox for Andoid in the SUMO (support.mozila.org) team and it’s not getting the exposure it deserves. So I am going to have a series of “What’s happening”posts. They will be happening at least once a week and will summarize what’s going on.

Current release is Firefox 22 for Android: There are no major Firefox 22 for Android issues, thanks to everybody for making this release smooth and it’s great to see overall crashing and issues decreasing.

Upcoming releases:

Firefox 23

Firefox 24

  • It’s help article day on Thursday i.e. Today July 25, 2013, help us research and do some easy edits!:
  • It’s time to research articles for Firefox 24 for Android.  Thanks to Karen and Erin the Firefox for Android roadmap is accurate!  Please use it for research: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Roadmap#Firefox_24:_Embracing_the_Ecosystem_.28Aurora.29
  • The big feature in 24 is our upcoming Android permission bump to enable some cool features: geolocation services, NFC bump and perhaps more. (why perhaps? because Firefox is on a 6 week release cycle which we call a “train” and sometimes we move features from one train to another e.g. from the FF24 train to the FF25 train).
