Feedback Summary (Cheng/Tyler/Matt)



We are currently seeing two major trends in Firefox 31 feedback which revolve around the Verizon Mail issue and feedback about the addition of a search box to the New Tab page.

Verizon Mail - 404

Verizon Mail users on Firefox 31 are reporting that they are unable to reply/forward/send e-mails and were given a null 404 error. The details of this issue can be found in bug 1043690. There is currently no workaround available. We are recommending a chemspill at this point to address the issue.

New Tab Page

Firefox 31 users have been fairly vocal about the updates made to the New Tab page. Many users find the new functionality to be extremely beneficial. Some users are confused by the change and have not discovered the ability to change providers.

Updates Project

More detailed results of the Update Hotfix at our blog. Not to give away any surprises, but we've updated over 6 million users.

Coming Soon

31 Release survey is live and getting responses. Detailed week 1 report out today.
