Jaipur Uses Firefox Nightly

It was an initiative to run a pilot campaign for Firefox Nightly in Jaipur as it is happening throughout India. Through this event we wanted be building strong technical community in Jaipur which will be using and testing Nightly on a regular basic which is a great way to get involved to a Mozilla project.

Event started with a brief introduction of Mozilla and What is Firefox Nightly? And then we have shared the nightly file so that everyone has nightly browser to explore and use on a daily basis. As they were installing on their computer I talked about importance of nightly user and what great impact it gives back to community when we use this browser and file a bug if any in nightly browser.

After the installation we have discussed about two methods of filing bug. One for the browser specific , use bugzilla and for website which are not compatible in nightly, use webcompat . Also gave a demo of Nightly Tester Tools extension and how they an use it in the browser.

During the event we shared pictures on social media and used profile changer and shared the details of campaign and nightly on twitter. Also one of the participant filed two bugs, one on bugzilla and one on webcompat . Everyone will be using this browser on a daily basis and we are looking forward for more bugs to be filed .

MozCoffee Jaipur

When you see people around you, have enough potential to lead a project or be a mentor to someone . Its your duty to guide them to a proper channel so that they follows the same. Recently I became Mozilla Rep , went to the same place where I organized my first Mozilla event.


In this event we focused on guiding new members to a proper channel and passing the roles and responsibilities to Active members . Event started with a general introduction of Open Source and how Mozilla is related to it. Ways to contribute in Mozilla. And other areas of contribution. In this process we have filtered the participants and get to know they all are technically sound and have come to this event to learn something new .


So we split the participants into two group where we had a small session of WebExtension and they developed their first add-on. Everyone was Excited!!! to see their work in front of their eyes.


After the event we had a group picture.

We then proceeds towards discussing new plans for the community and how to track them .

  • 10 Events in 10 Different Colleges of Rajasthan. Introduction of Mozilla and establishment of a Mozilla Club in their college, so that we can have a channel to be in touch with them and guide them on a regular basis.
  • 3 Hackathons based on Rust, WebVR and Firefox in general which will include other development sessions such as WebExtensions,QA and l10n.
  • MozCoffee Event with the Club lead of all the Colleges and few active contributors in my community to guide them to be a mentor not a leader.
  • Each month at least 3 colleges, 1 Hackathon and 1 Meetup.

Jaipur Test Pilot Meetup


With the help of the contributors, we aim to explore Test Pilot as a hope to test the experimental add-ons, find issues, file bugs and document.

Event was organized in MCR Community House with the MCR members and QA Analyst Madhuri Mittal . Test Pilot was introduced to the participants and everyone installed the add-ons listed on the TestPilot website .

Everyone loved the Snooze Tab, Page Shot , Tab Center and Containers and played with the other add-ons too. After the initial over view of the Add-ons , we performed the Test Cases and how to identify a bug, where to report and how to track that bug was discussed with the participants.

After the initial impression of add-ons , we were excited to develop our own add-ons. Then Osho parth took a small session of WebExtensions where we followed the First WebExtension and Second WebExtension . Looking forward to contribute more on WebExtension , QA and TestPilot.


MozActivate MITS & Unicorn Club


It all started in the month of January when i requested Mehul Patel to file an event on behalf of me. He is a helpful person who really want to spread the Mozilla Love to all corners of India not only to his region. I met him during the MakerParty’17 in Ahmedabad.

So he filed the event and he make sure that everything is arranged. As the time come for the event which is 18th and 19th Feb, 2017 I was informed by one of the Club member of Mozilla MITS that their administration in not allowing them to have this event. So we have to postpone the dates as they are willing to have this event after Holi ( i.e during 18th-19th March ) but it didn’t happen again. So finally after this much effort and continuous rejection few members of the Club is ready to attend this event and get back to their college and take a fresh start.

It was a Sunday morning when students from MITS came to jaipur for a meeting where we discussed about the failure of their club and what all difficulties they were facing. It was a wonderful time to introduce the Collaborative Club culture where clubs from different cities which work together to accomplish a common goal.

Unicorn Club members also came to the venue where they have said the same problem as MITS said. How to Start ? Where to start with ? And What we need to do as a beginner ?

Event started with a brief introduction of all of the participant and answer to a question. What problem did he faced in Mozilla Club?

So here goes the structure I presented them :

  • Join the proper information channel from where they’ll get to know what is happening in Mozilla in general. eg Facebook Group,Telegram,Discourse, mailing-list.
  • I told them my story , how I came in mozilla and what mozilla gave me.
  • Mozilla Campus Club. What is it? How they can get the benefits? What all activities they can do.
  • WebVR , What is WebVR and how to get started in A-frame.
  • MozActivate’s projects: Rust,WebVR,TestPilot and WebCompat were discussed and how to get started with these.
  • As a fresher they can start with QA, L10n and SuMo what they were already doing in past.
  • We prepared a time line where each club will be having a small sprint of each projects discussed above. To start with they will have a follow up event where they will be testing add-ons listed in TestPilot website.
  • Also they were told about the necessary things they have to do before and after the event. Involve , spread and share about the their event in proper medium and blog,pictures and feedback after the event.

Then we had an awesome lunch with all the participants. They really loved the food…


After the lunch we had a basic WebVR session where the MITS members learn about A-frame in detail also experienced the scenes on VR-Box. I had few swags to give away for the members of MITS which I distributed with them.

MozDev @ NIIT

Event started with a brief introduction of Osho Parth and Md Shahbaz Alam. After the introduction session, Osho Parth introduced the concept of Open Source and How it is important for all of us. He beautifully explained Mozilla with a story and how Mozilla is part of open source. Let me tell you Firefox is not Mozilla, it’s just a product of Mozilla. Participants get to know about the various variant of Firefox and other Mozilla’s product.

After his session , I introduced about Web Compatibility .Answered these questions, Why it is important ? When to report ? Where to report ? Should I report ? Will i get something ? After this i showed a demo where i reported a bug on http://webcompat.com/ also asked to download webcompat add-on.
