  1. I’d really like to try out Firefox OS but I have two requirements for the phone:

    1) The phone is at the higher end of specs (HD or Full HD screen, >= 1 GB RAM, >= 2 CPU cores, etc.)
    2) The phone receives new official releases of Firefox OS immediately (similar to iPhones and Nexus phones).

    Any recommendations?

  2. I’d like to see some structure to the list of updates. For example there is clearly something going on with the standard look for toolbars, list those together and have a few sentences describing what is going on with the toolbar and/or link to the canonical or parent bug.

    @Matthias Geeksphone have said they’re launching a new phone this month called the Revolution, the expectation is it will run FirefoxOS though I’ve not seen official confirmation of that.

  3. Hi, can you post some mockups for 1.4 visual refresh? I have searched on Bugzilla but I couldn’t find screenshots for all visual changes.
    I would really like to know how new Homescreen will look like, new app icons, and other updated app

  4. Wow, this is great! Thanks for posting it.
    I agree with the suggestion to group associated bugs and would encourage ways to bridge the gap between the technical and Mozilla specific terminology and the lay person (perhaps a lexicon for words like FOTA, APZC & B2G).
    I think these updates could help with general western sentiment. There hasn’t been much done in the way of PR mitigation for negative perceptions.

  5. That’s a great thing for the project, thanks! Hope you can keep up with a weekly update as it’s a pretty time consuming task.

    By the way, how do you gather this list?
