QMO is the home of Mozilla Quality Assurance.

2014 Re-design

We sought feedback on the current state of QMO (as of June 2014) on two Mozilla mailing lists: community-building and dev-quality. The ideas presented by nearly 25 community members and QA team members are summarized below.

Summary of Feedback

Purpose of QMO

  • the entrance page to QA team
  • explain what the QA work is
  • how QMO is structured for the different products in Mozilla
  • welcoming spot for our QA community
  • help the community get involved with QA activities: clear directions on how to start, depending on your skills/interests to give pointers to more advanced documentation, to promote the upcoming events.
  • surface recent news (blogs, feeds) about testing needs, accomplishments and events

Community Needs

  • a summary of how to start at QMO, for the new contributor and pinned on the home page (How I Can Help Test - should get more prominence).
  • documentation should move to Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) where the rest of Mozilla's documentation resides and is well-indexed by search engines.
  • Event Notification and better Event Calendar - upcoming events *first*
  • easy way to adding the events to the calendar (Google, Apple, Lighting and others), rather than downloading.
  • Showing the Badges for QA.
  • interaction via IRC
  • platform for QA education (open source testing tools, technical skills)
  • listing of community members and their contributions / areas of focus

QMO Home Page

  • remove the login on the top right of the home page
  • create Planet QA with the blog - syndicate feeds from team members' blogs
  • update the careers button to the correct link
  • publicize open QA meeting on Wednesdays (see for inspiration)
  • keep teams icons since they are adorable (kudos to Craig Cook for creating them!)
  • Video section - get rid of it
  • updated theme
  • mobile support

Team pages

  • Team photo on team page
  • each team member's email address for direct community interaction
  • links to highlight any specific events/news/blog posts targeting their projects
  • MDN / Wiki links on how to participate in their work.
  • link directly to the One and Done tasks already filtered for that project
  • the Desktop Firefox page should have links to Nightly/Aurora/Beta downloads


QMO is currently based on Wordpress and some plugins for additional functionality.
