Be one of the first to develop a Firefox Add-on for mobile

puzzle In the not too distant future, Firefox will be publicly available on Maemo-powered mobile devices, namely Nokia’s N900 mobile computer. This launch marks the beginning of Firefox for mobile devices and we couldn’t be more excited about the possibilities in front of us!

Firefox is the first ever Web browser to offer add-ons for mobile. In an effort to arm Firefox for Maemo (beta) and Firefox for Windows Mobile (alpha) users with the most  intuitive and customizable mobile Web browser in existence, we’re asking you for your help: take your Firefox Add-on mobile!

Although Firefox for the desktop as well as for the mobile device are built on the same core technology, your desktop add-on requires a few tweaks to reach compatibility for mobile. Check out Mark Finkle’s latest blog post, which includes instructions and documentation to help you go mobile with your add-on. In some cases, you may need to rework your add-on’s design in order to improve the experience within the mobile UI. Madhava Enros has published a mobile add-ons style guide to show you how to reformat your add-on to ensure design compatibility.

Mark Finkle ( irc.mozilla.org , IRC: mfinkle) will be available on #mobile to take questions and help you convert your add-on to the mobile platform.

Firefox for mobile seeks to improve the mobile Web browsing experience for millions of people around the world and we cannot reach this goal without your help and expertise. Thank you for continued support and innovative mastery!

If you have other ideas for useful and relevant add-ons and apps for mobile (like geolocation, accessing the camera, offline browsing, making calls, etc.) don’t be shy! We’re on IRC at #mobile.
