Currently, Mobile Firefox has no way for users to interact with the Mozilla Project through the browser UI. Desktop Firefox has a "Report Broken Website" option in the Help menu that gives them a chance to offer feedback to the project without too much effort. I'd like to port that feature into an extension for Mobile Firefox and send that information to a query-able repository of anonymous feedback. Also, change the name to "Report a Problem" Mechanism.
