Firefox Status Update

  • Firefox 14 release is in two weeks
  • Realplayer supposedly released a new version that solved the issues with Flash in protected.


  • KPIs have legends now.
  • Heads up: Traditionally contributor numbers drop between July and August.
  • Our solved rate is going down, might be related to the above, might be the type of questions. I didn't have the time yet to investigate this further, would greatly appreciate, if someone wants to lend a hand.
    • Working on trying to figure out reasons behind this. One is that Self-Help is being utilized more, so technical questions are a higher percentage. I will give a presentation at the work week and have more concrete answers and some possible solutions. - Tyler
