Welcome to Firefox Support! From November 15, 20 community members have helped improve the experience of over 900,000 Firefox users.

Updates from the SUMO Team

This week, the SUMO team is working on documentation for Firefox 4 Beta, on launching the new Metrics Dashboard, and on testing the brand new Kitsune knowledge base platform. More details are available on the SUMO blog, along with ways you can help.

Watch a video about our last meeting:

What you can do

  • Check out the new help with Firefox 4 Beta Firefox 4 Beta support page, where we're posting links for the most commonly asked questions about the beta.
  • If you have an Android smartphone, get the latest Firefox 4 beta! (See the Mozilla Mobile home to download the latest version.)
  • Read our Mobile documentation and give us feedback. If you find something that isn't clear or isn't documented, contribute to the discussion in our forums.

This week's focus: Localizing the new support site

We're getting ready to launch an entirely new platform for our knowledge base (on November 30!), which will offer much more powerful editing and at least 10 times the speed of our old software. For localizers, these changes mean that translating the site will soon be greatly improved.

If you're a localizer, we need your help now to make sure the new site's interface is translated for your language before we launch. For more details, read Michael's post on the SUMO blog
