Kick the tires on the new Spread Firefox!

27 Mar

We’ve come a long way with the Spread Firefox redesign thanks to a great team! We’re gearing up to push it live in April, but could use your critical eye on the staged site! (note: you’ll get a warning that the site identity is unverified because we’re using self-signed certificates — just add an exception and you’ll be able to view the  staging site).  I have recapped the major changes on Spread Firefox.

A few things to note about the staged redesign:

  • We’re still working on the Top Fox/Affiliate tracking
  • Some of the content (events, discussion topics, affiliate buttons, etc) differs from production as production & stage aren’t sync’d
  • There is a lot of new documentation (Getting Started, FAQ, Quick Wins and more) where we could use your eyes
  • We’ve moved from “groups” to “projects” so you’ll notice this change in the menu and elsewhere
  • Here is a list of the redesign-related bugs

Please feel free to file bugs, comment below or pop into #spreadfirefox on irc.mozilla.org if you find anything off.    Thanks!

    Awww. It’s like my little baby growing up 😀

    You all are doing a wonderful job. It looks great.

    A couple of minor visual glitches:

    1. the Firefox logo and site name in the header is a little too compressed and not as well anti-aliased as it could be (https://spreadfirefox.authstage.mozilla.com/sites/all/themes/sfxBB/img/logo.png)
    2. the Firefox logo in the get firefox image is also compressed too far (https://spreadfirefox.authstage.mozilla.com/sites/all/themes/sfxBB/img/downloadff-bg.png)
    3. the background color behind the “Start” image doesn’t quite match the background color of the red large box it lives in. (https://spreadfirefox.authstage.mozilla.com/sites/all/themes/sfxBB/img/start.png)
