Support/Firefox 4 User Support Plan

From MozillaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This document describes one part of the Support efforts around Firefox 4 Beta. For other sub-projects, see the main project page

This section involves providing user support to the expected 1-2 M beta users who are not in the usual "technical" beta audience. These will be more mainstream users and rather than the previous approach of telling users with problems to stick to release versions of Firefox, we'd like to provide the full support experience from the outset.


  1. Provide help, support and instruction to Firefox 4 beta users, solve their problems and make sure they're satisfied with the beta.
  1. Build a vibrant and active community around the beta outreach program that we can maintain when Firefox 4 is released.
