Open Web Apps feedback: Consolidating our channels

In August 2014 we announced the opening of a new feedback channel for web apps on UserVoice. It has led to some good discussions and here are a few highlights:

We would like to sincerely thank those who have provided input and participated in all of the discussions. Unfortunately, after some great initial levels of participation we have since seen usage fall, so at this time we think it is best to discontinue use of With UserVoice’s handy data exporting services, we’ve made sure we have an archived copy of the ideas posted and interactions that took place on the site.

Please keep the feedback and feature suggestions coming. It’s essential for us to continue to hear from developers like you. We’d simply like to redirect feedback back to mailing lists/newsgroups (see this list of IRC channels and mailing lists for some Mozilla app-specific channels), which aims to be a forum for building web standards, and Bugzilla instances like Mozilla’s.

Note: The Firefox Developer Tools feedback channel hosted on UserVoice ( is very active and is most definitely remaining open!

    This maybe a wrong place to ask this but since topic is user feedback I hope you will not get too angry. Where can users get some assistance regarding problems with Firefox marketplace?

    I have not found a way to send an email to people managing the Firefox marketplace regarding I problem I encountered when trying to submit my latest app.

    Thanks in advance.

    The link is directing to a forum that says it’s for “Ebay enterprice” is this a gag or is this an error? Also it looks almost vacant so … I’m confused.

      @Caleb – thanks for your comment and apologies for the bad link. I’ve corrected the URL: — Firefox Dev Tools channel is alive and well!
