On Mobile devices there are essentially two initiatives Firefox Mobile and FirefoxOS.

Firefox Mobile (Fennec)

"Fennec" is the code name of Mozilla's project to develop Firefox for mobile devices. For more information about Firefox Mobile, see the Fennec project page or get involved page.


Bringing Firefox to mobile phones is the next step towards fulfilling Mozilla’s mission of providing access to one Web that everyone can access, regardless of device or location. The overall goals for Mobile Firefox are:

  • Provide a platform for developers to create compelling content and applications using the latest Web technologies like HTML5, CSS and JavaScript.
  • Deliver an exceptional mobile experience to users, complete with the performance, personalization and security they expect.
  • Do all of this work in the shared Mozilla source repositories so all platforms, desktop and mobile, benefit each other.

For more background on our goals please see these blog posts. Still have questions? See our Mobile FAQ.

Mobile Marketing Automation

Fennec uses an external tool to help engaging with users. The tool we are using is Leanplum. For details about the running campaign, please visit Leanplum Contextual Hints page.

Firefox OS

  • "B2G" (Boot To Gecko) is the code name of Mozilla's project to develop an OS for Mobile devices entirely based on open Web technologies.
  • Gaia is the collection of web apps which make up the front end of Firefox OS.

Mobile Web Compatibility

Some Web sites are coding for very specific browsers. It creates Mobile Web Compatibility issues for Firefox for Android and Firefox OS. You can help Mozilla solve these issues.
