When presenting Firefox OS to people, security is a big topic. Can an operating system built on web technologies be secure? What has Mozilla built in to avoid drive-by downloads and malware?

Searchers on smartphones experience many speed bumps that can slow them down. For example, any time they need to change context from a web page to an app, or vice versa, users are likely to encounter redirects, pop-up dialogs, and extra swipes and taps. Wouldn't it be cool if you could give your users the choice of viewing your content either on the website or via your app, both straight from Google's search results? Read more
One thing that is very important for us at Mozilla is the need to directly interact with you developers and help you with challenges and issues while developing using open technologies. We are now happy to announce our presence on Stack Overflow!
Stack Overflow is one of – if not the – most well-known question and answer sites among developers, and we believe it’s very important to go where developers are and choose to have their discussions while developing.Read more
We take the security and privacy of our users very seriously and, as we noted in May, Google has been working to upgrade all its SSL certificates to 2048-bit RSA or better by the end of 2013. Coming in ahead of schedule, we have completed this process, which will allow the industry to start removing trust from weaker, 1024-bit keys next year.
As the nights grow longer and the days become colder and crisper, it’s a frenzy of activity in Poland and Norway. Our developers have been labouring on a new release of Opera for Mac and Windows, while bidding farewell to their house-elves who are going for their annual secondment to the North Pole for present-wrapping duties.
Today, we’re very proud to release Opera 18. Note that even the numerals look like an elf skiing to Svalbard next to a snowman.
But what will you discover, wrapped in this beautiful package?Read more

Knowing what is going on with git and many environments can be hard. In
particular, it can be hard to easily know where the server environments are on
the git history, and how the rest of the world relates to that. I’ve set up a
couple interlocking gears of tooling that help me know whats going on.

SSL/TLS combines a number of choices about cryptographic primitives, including the choice of cipher, into a collection that it calls a “cipher suite.” A list of cipher suites is maintained by the Internet Assigned Names and Numbers Authority.
When your codebase is 2GB, grep doesn’t cut it anymore. It’s slow, and, in such a large corpus, many attempts to find a symbol get drowned out by false positives. Even modern IDEs begin to choke under the load. This is the domain of DXR, Mozilla’s tool for doing structured queries, free-text searches, and even trigram-accelerated regex matching on large projects like Firefox.Read more
