Mozilla is looking to expand innovation through its own incubator program for the open web. Web FWD is a new program that is designed from the ground up to help build up projects that focus around open web technologies. Teams will be invited to work within Mozilla offices for four weeks where they will be teamed u with some of the greatest minds inside of Mozilla and have access to all the Mozilla resources too. If you are an open source web developer, this should be a dream come true.

Want to stop websites from tracking your behavior and details? Firefox supports a new feature that will hopefully be the solution to this problem. It is called Do-not-track. It is easy enough to enable too. All you have to do is follow a few simple steps.
Firefox’s history features have always been a little lacking if you need to do any real heavy duty searching for something you browsed through before.

I have been using Firefox on my Droid X phone for a while now and love it. Sure, there are a few faults to it – but overall Mozilla has done a great job at developing a mobile phone browser, plain and simple. One issue I ran into early on though was I didn’t know where to get the special add-ons for the mobile version of the browser. Some add-ons might work in both the desktop and mobile versions of Firefox, but others do not.
So, where should you turn to get the Mobile Add-ons for your favorite browser?
