Ways to make an impact in OCTOBER

Below are featured opportunities for this month. This wiki has the full list of contribution opportunities. Be sure to self-report any contributions you make in the Get Recognized section below!

One and Done (15-minute tasks)

Don't have much time but want to do something to help Marketplace? Pick a simple task below:

  1. Test and rate apps on Marketplace
    1. Go to on your mobile device and find an app with fewer than 10 reviews that interests you.
    2. Install and sample the app. If it's broken or has mature or unsafe content, use the "Report Abuse" button to notify the app review team.
    3. Rate and review the app by clicking the "Write a Review" button. See Tips
  2. Fix MDN links for Marketplace documentation:
  3. App localization review: (Free Transifex account required): Review 100% of all strings in your local language for any app that's listed in the Firefox App Localization project on Transifex. We continue to need reviewers of Bengali/Bengali_bd/Bengali_in apps. Also, there's a need for translation reviews and translators for apps in dozens of languages, and many are easily "one and done."
  4. App translation: Complete any app localization where there are still some untranslated strings. Please self-report on your progress, but be sure to play fair. Some apps have much more work (more strings). If you like to work on translation, sign up here to get a Transifex account

Guided Projects

Looking for a bigger challenge that requires more creativity and deeper involvement? A guided project can be fun and rewarding, and help you learn new skills:

  1. First-time code contributions: tinker with Marketplace code, and get some guidance too!
    1. NEW! Step-by-step slides and video on how to contribute to front-end Marketplace bugs:
    2. More documentation:
