We are Mozilla. AUA.
We're a few of the thousands of Mozilla contributors (Mozillians) working together to better the Web. First things first, as few things about us:
- You probably know us as the community behind Firefox - we're also working on several other products and services too.
- Some of us have been involved with the Mozilla project for over a decade and others just started recently. Anyone can get involved. Even you.
- We're a global group of people, and we work globally too. While some of us work at Mozilla Spaces, many of us work remotely from our homes. We rely heavily on newgroups, Bugzilla, IRC and video conferences to work together.
- We're big fans of reddit, and we've done just a few (or more) IAmAs before. Today we decided to have one IAmA for all Mozillians instead of just one team.
We contribute in many different ways, as listed below. Ask us anything!

We'll be answering questions for about 24 hours, so ask away!
Edit: We're going to answer for more than 24 hours, as long as I keep getting the orangereds, we'll be answering!
Edit 2: The questions are starting to slow down, I think we'll stick around for another 2 hours or so (currently 1:25 CDT) "officially", people will still probably answer questions after this, but not as quickly.
Final edit: We're gonna call this done. I'd like to thank everybody who participated, Redditors and Mozilla contributors. This was a great experience for me, looking forward to maybe doing another one in the future. I'd like to give special thanks to all the /r/IAmA mods for putting up with my constant flow of PMs requesting flair for people.
