F1-icon-128.png F1 2011 Roadmap
Owner: Bryan Clark Updated: 2018-04-19
User Goals:
  • Create a fun, fast, and reliable system that encourages people to share
  • Embrace the different types/levels of sharing people are comfortable with

Platform Goals:

  • Create a trusted partner for people to share links through
  • Standardize pieces of the link sharing activity, open it up to more players
  • Reduce the sharing NASCAR effect on sites
    • Work with sites to provide mutually beneficial user interactions


Mozilla F1 is a simple and fast sharing service designed to enhance the sharing experience of the browser, Firefox, when sharing web sites.

The name F1 is a project name that is not necessarily the final name when compared with more standardized/branded names like Firefox Share.
The project is both a hosted service and an add-on to Firefox. The hosted service acts as an OAuth proxy service which the add-on uses to push shares through.


F1 has 3 bugzilla components for bug tracking
