Firefox Accounts Campaign – Ranchi

We gathered with the open-source contributors in Ranchi and invited other open source communities, to take part in the discussion on “PRIVACY”. A word which is very much popular these days, companies, government organizations, and developers who don’t even bother to give this right to the users.


And when there is a fight for the freedom of the internet and user’s privacy, no other than Mozilla’s name comes into mind. An organization that is fighting for the freedom of the internet and users’ privacy. Internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all.– we believe truely believe this and doing good is part of our code.

One login. All your devices. A family of products that respects your privacy.


We talked about why and how this family of the product will be helping users to fight against user privacy and keeping their data safe and protected.

Beta Testing BugHunting

Hello Everyone, It’s been almost 9 months since I wrote a blog. There are pending blogs coming soon from Oct 2018, which includes my journey experience and speaking experience from southeast Asia.

After a series of WebExtension events in Ranchi, It was time to test our Favorite browser, we organized two BugHunting events one on 25-May-2019 and next on 09-June-2019.

The first event started with downloading the Firefox Preview after signing and setting up the Google Play account. We have also discussed the importance of Bug and why one should always report.

Mozilla was launching a NEW Android web browser and they needed us to get it ready for the free and open web.

We followed How to Bug Hunt section of and Shared the bug entry details

The event concluded with some delicious food at dinner as most of them were keeping Ramadan Fast. So, we preferred the night to do the event.


The second event had a different goal, we divided the team into two, one who attended previous Bug Hunting Event and the second set of people were new to Bug Hunting.

For newbies were followed the above steps and for ones who attended the previous event, were asked to go through bugs faced by each other and helping others to file the bug they encounter. We have submitted 56 bugs in total using bug entry.





We concluded the event with awesome food and more bugs!!

Let’s increase Firefox Market share

With the Andreas Gal’s latest post it is quite clear that we are losing our market share and same can be seen on Wikipedia’s Usage Share Page.

I am a Mozilla Rep. When I joined Mozilla 4 years back, I was literally knowing only three browsers Internet Explorer(thanks to Microsoft), Google Chrome(here due to Android) and Opera Mini(Only browser which uses less data then).
But thanks to the community in Rajasthan which was so much active then, promoting Mozilla and it’s Mission. That was the first time when I get to know about Mozilla Firefox. Firefox is a product which is the core of Mozilla, this is what I believe and assume other volunteers,mozillians and Reps Share the same.

Today, Firefox is mainly used by Mozilla volunteers and few engineers that to are losing faith in it due to compatibility issue and other problems.To name a few, Hangout call is not supported by Firefox, which we use more often for our monthly meeting in India. So what we could do is, create a campaign just like Firefox Nightly and Rain of Rust to promote the use of Firefox, where we will introduce this browser to the students which are still unaware of the browser, which you may agree too.

We are a country with a population of over 1.311 billion where 315 million are students, if we could target those and industry people. This will definitely increase our market share.

I agree that Firefox sometimes doesn’t behave well and we lack other support too which is available in other browsers. I also see a great opportunity for us to make this browser more advanced and easy to use.We want a browser which we love. During this campaign, we will be collecting lots of feedback and suggestions and how you want this browser for yourself. Then we will share these reports with Mozilla staff and help them to create a browser which people love.

I would love to know your feedback and suggestion regarding this campaign as well as any correction will be appreciatable.

My first event as a Speaker @MozIntro

After getting the approval for organizing this event on My school i was very much excited and started planning for the events agenda and discussed a lot and made few slides to be discussed during event.(Event was supposed to be on 24th but due to holidays we have adjusted the date to 22nd Oct).

On the event day we reached school @ 8:30 a.m and started our preparation and i’m very thankful to St. Clare’s staff who helped us to set up the hall.

@9:15 students arrived and sat silently in the hall waiting for us to start the event.I was expecting around 100 attendees but they came in large numbers.They were 250+ in number.Event started with the introduction. Talha and i told them about us and had a great interacting session where we get to know more about our school.


We started with telling and asking them about the Programming languages and explained the difference between INTERNET and WEB ? also taught them about Web Languages.

We showed them a video ” We’re building a better Internet — Mozilla “. Explained them who we are and why we’re doing this. and what’s the benefit of protecting the Web.Also explained the Mozilla Mission.


Then we asked them which browser they generally use and why?… answer came in large number saying Google Chrome… few hands were up for Opera and Mozilla Firefox…
Answers were quite interesting ones…
*because chrome has faster download option
*some says chrome is fast(i.e browsing)
*and few said that they like Firefox because downloading speed in Firefox is fast
*some consider Nimbuzz as a browser
*Some says bing
*one said Safari

We get to know few browsers name which i never heard like Q-Browser,M-Browser

After this we have showed them a video : “Mozilla Manifesto – We answer to no one,but you…”

And then explained them about the Mozilla Firefox Browser…
Whats its advantages and why one should use.

Students were enjoying a lot seeing this things and learning the things… Teachers were also listening and enjoyed a lot…

In between there were Question Answer round were we distributed swags…

After this we told them about the Open Source Software. Its advantages and explained about the source code. In between this I asked them if they know about Firefox OS phone.. And i was not expecting this answer but one said yes and said the exact price of it(Thanks to Snapdeal).
Also showed them Intex’s Firefox OS phone which Talha recently got from Mozilla.

Asked few more question about OS.. Also explained the difference between open source OS like Firefox OS,Linux and Android(Somewhat open) and closed source like Windows.

This event was supposed to be a Webmaker one but due to no internet connectivity and laptop or Computer lab (for these many students) we started to teach them about App development basics.

I have showed them My App which i made recently “Programming in C” also showed Trishul Bhaiya’s App “M4Maths”.

As during QA round i get to know that these students know little HTML.

So started the App-Development Basics.

Students were eagerly noting down the steps also explained the webapp file… And told them what a JSON file and how its  format looks.


As we were running out of time So we started asking more questions and get good responses from the audience..
We thanked the audience and school and told them that we’ll visit soon with the bigger event next time.
As a feedback we asked them to write an essay on “Open Source and Mozilla” and best essay will get a t-shirt , collected their e-mail id’s and asked them to follow us on Facebook and gave our whats app number.

They loved the event and wanted us to visit the school again so that they can learn more and built their own apps.

Soon we’ll be returning with the bigger event…
