Shortcuts[edit]

I suggest WP:MOZILLA , WP:GECKO as shortcuts to this WPP. P:MOZILLA , P:GECKO as shortcuts to the portal. (They would all need to be tagged with {{R from shortcut}} ) ; the obvious one WP:MOZ is already used by WP:MOZAMBIQUE. -- 70.50.151.36 (talk) 11:42, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Why have the GECKO ones? Gecko is an internal name for Mozilla's rendering engine, used in some Mozilla software, but it's not a name used in marketing (Netscape owns the trademark; Mozilla has a limited licence) and it's not the name of this WikiProject. I'd say remove that one. WP:MOZILLA, of course, makes good sense :-) -- Gerv 12:27, 21 August 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gerv (talkcontribs)

You're right, Gerv. I've removed the WP:GECKO redirect. ҭᴙᴇᴡӌӌ 02:40, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

User:Stephenwanjau/Wikiproject Firefox[edit]

Should the usertemplate User:Stephenwanjau/Wikiproject Firefox be moved into projectspace? Say WP:WikiProject Mozilla/User template or something? -- 76.65.128.252 (talk) 07:51, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

Quoting Wikipedia:UBX#Which namespace?: "Wikipedia: Userboxes in the project namespace are generally for WikiProject or task force usage. Simply create it as a subpage of the WikiProject. (e.g. Wikipedia:VG/DAH!/userbox)" - and since this userbox is uncontroversial, I think it should be moved. mabdul 11:09, 15 August 2012 (UTC)
Trying to create WP:MOZILLA/WP/userbox, but unable to. I read over all the documentation, but I'm unable to create the page. Anyone have some advice? Thanks. ҭᴙᴇᴡӌӌ 17:43, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
Done. Moved User:Stephenwanjau/Wikiproject Firefox to Wikipedia:WikiProject Mozilla/Userbox (and corresponding talk pages), with WP:MOZILLA/UBX as a redirect. Gordon P. Hemsley 23:55, 21 August 2012 (UTC)

Cite4Wiki needs new developer(s) - it broke with the release of Firefox 17![edit]

FYI: Just a notice where it may find a qualified party; no action is required by the project on articles.

Cite4Wiki is on e-death's door. I am the fourth developer, in series, of this tool. I need to hand over the reins to (or at least recruit the aid of) someone capable of re-developing this Wikipedia source citation add-on for Firefox, so that it is compatible with modern versions of the browser. In its current form, it dates to Firefox 4 (but was really re-developed from a Firefox 2 plug-in, and it shows). While it had an unusually long run without changes, as of Firefox 17 it no longer works. A large number of editors have depended on it, on a daily basis, for several years. I simply do not have the real-world cycles to absorb the new Firefox add-on APIs; not now, and not in the foreseeable future. The tool is simply dead without some hopefully quick aid. Please help if you have the skills! — SMcCandlish   Talk⇒ ɖ∘¿¤þ   Contrib. 04:15, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

Mozilla Portal[edit]

Portal:Mozilla has been nominated for deletion -- 65.94.76.126 (talk) 08:19, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Naming[edit]

How come the article on Firefox is just named Firefox, but the article on Thunderbird is named Mozilla Thunderbird? (Why not "Thunderbird (email client" or similar?) George8211what did I break now? 17:51, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
