Contributions to Firefox In My First Three Weeks
7 July, 2011 § 8 Comments
I joined Mozilla on June 13th and have had a great time working with the Mozilla community. As the Firefox 7 train has now left the yard, I’d like to go over my work that did and did not make it in to Firefox 7.
In Firefox 7 (August 2011):
- Added the ability to select and copy the version text from the About dialog.
- Reduced the download size of our Linux distribution by a tiny fraction when I removed document.png from our package.
- Added the ability to click on the content area of HTML5 video elements to toggle between play and pause.
After Firefox 7 (September 2011 or later):
- Increasing the click-ablility of the Back button on Windows.
- Add large play button overlay to HTML5 video elements. [Artwork in this post is courtesy of yours truly]
- Add support for the
stalledevent with our standard HTML5 video controls.
