World Firefox Day *UPDATED*

Monday, 28 August 2006 at 1:30 4 comments


A little late as World Firefox Day was 15th July, 3rd anniversary of the day that the Mozilla Foundation was created. Basically, Mozilla want to promote Firefox as much as possible coming up to the release of Firefox 2. If you e-mail a friend through this website, and if they decide to download FF before 16th September, Mozilla will add your name to the Firefox Friends Wall, which will ship with FF 2. Sounds quite cool. Read on:

Taken from the World Firefox day FAQs.

What exactly is the Firefox Friends Wall?
The Firefox Friends Wall is a digital wall that will display the names of everyone who participates in Firefox Day.

Where will the wall be housed?
At Mozilla headquarters, in Mountain View, California. We’re also planning on bringing the wall with us to conferences and events.

How many names will go on the wall?
All the names of everyone who participates successfully in Firefox Day. There’s no limit, as the wall is digital.

How will our names be included in Firefox 2?
If both you and your friend opt-in to have your names included, we’ll add your names to an interactive Firefox friends display that will be accessible from within Firefox 2.

*UPDATE* I have posted this before, but this may help you swing your peer… in some way.

*UPDATE 2* Just so you know, here’s how to find the Friends Wall in FF 2.0 (mirrored from the WFFD website):

Thanks for being part of World Firefox Day 2006!

Here’s how you can see you and your friend’s names in Firefox 2:

  • Download Firefox 2 when it becomes available later this year
  • Select “About Mozilla Firefox“ from either the Help menu (Windows/Linux) or the Firefox menu (Mac).
  • Click on the “Credits” button in the About Mozilla Firefox window
  • Click on the “Friends ” link to display the list of names

    Hmm… I got so desperate i sent one to my Mum! It does say on the FAQs that you can send invites to more than one person. First you have to remove your previous invite, then just fill in the form from scratch.
