Feedback Summary


Things have stabilized and we have no current explosive issues. We are digging deeply into Beta and Aurora prior to the holidays. Initial results show an overwhelmingly positive response to retina support.


Stable, no explosive changes. We are seeing some of the same UX we saw before 17, but that is to be expected.

Meet Roland Tanglao, the new Firefox for Android Support Coordinator. He will be making sure we continue provide kick-ass support for Android and will be helping Tyler monitor issues.

User-Experience (Design & Research)

  • will send out the update
