Firefox for Desktop by Google Analytics

Firefox for Android

Firefox Klar and Firefox Focus had no issues upon the first first week release.

One highlight would be Firefox is confusing and they would rather share with Firefox and they would like the ability to change the search engine.

Social Support Highlights

We had a Social Support Sprint the second week of the release on November 18 and we loved having you.

Common questions:

  • Is Firefox Focus going to be available on Android?
  • I keep seeing a “your connection is not secure” message. Why?
  • Why does Firefox keep crashing?

November 30 there was a social responses made around this, “Firefox zero-day: Mozilla races to patch bug used to attack Tor browser users.” We responded to all of them.

In December, Best Practices for the Social Support people was published, be sure to check it out: Best Practices for Social Support

Thanks for reading everyone, see you next release in January 2017! Happy Holidays in the meantime!
