What’s up with SUMO – 24th April

Welcome to the weekly wrap-up of the going-on in the world of SUMO. Have you missed us? We missed you!

Welcome the new SUMOzillians among us!

Don’t hesitate to say “hi” in the forums  if I missed you on this list!

The latest SUMO Community meeting

You can find the agenda and notes here:, and the video is below (thank you, Madalina!)

Reminder: the next SUMO Community meeting…

  • …is going to take place on Monday, 27th of April. Join us!
  • As a rule, if you want to add a discussion topic to upcoming the live meeting agenda:
    • Start a thread in the Community Forums, so that everyone in the community can see what will be discussed and voice their opinion here before Monday (this will make it easier to have an efficient meeting).
    • Please do so as soon as you can before the meeting, so that people have time to read, think, and reply (and also add it to the agenda).

Help needed!

Developer news

Knowledge Base news

  • The Reading List feature for Firefox Desktop has been postponed, which may lead to the archiving of the relevant article.
  • On the other hand, we have a few new articles coming up: Private browsing for Firefox OS and all the Firefox for iOS content.

Firefox (Desktop, OS, for Android) & other news

Firefox OS
Firefox Android
  • Joni has revamped the Android permission article to make it clear that Android OS (not Mozilla) requires all permissions to be approved when installing an Android app like Firefox even if you never use them (and that Firefox will prompt you each and every time after you install it so Mozilla doesn’t compromise your ability to choose which websites use features like camera, microphone, location, etc.). Also, the Firefox 38 articles in English are almost finished (thanks to Joni!).
Firefox for iOS
