Mozilla Open Policy & Advocacy Blog: Mozilla Advocacy – 2015 Plan

Mozilla planet - ti, 19/05/2015 - 22:51

Mozilla Advocacy — Our 2015 Plan for Protecting and Advancing the Open Web

Advocacy is a relatively new area of focus for Mozilla. Our increased emphasis on advocacy is born out of the recognition that, like code, public policy has an impact on the shape and health of the open web — and that a vital force protecting the web will be the millions of people who consider themselves to be citizens of the web.

Over the next few weeks, the Mozilla Advocacy team — including Andrea Wood, Director of Digital Advocacy and Fundraising; Melissa Romaine, Advocacy Manager; Chris Riley, Head of Public Policy; Stacy Martin, Senior Manager of Privacy and Engagement; Jochai Ben-Avie, Internet Policy Manager; and, Alina Hua, Senior Data Privacy Manager —  will lay out our latest thinking about how we’re developing public policy and creating advocacy initiatives.

Our goal with Mozilla Advocacy is to advance the Mozilla mission by empowering people to create measurable changes in public policy to protect the Internet as a global public resource, open and accessible to all. Our three strategies to achieve this goal are:

  1. Leadership Development — Grow a global cadre of leaders — activists, technologists, policy experts — who advance the free and open web.

  2. Community — Assist, grow, and enable the wider policy & advocacy community.

  3. Grassroots Advocacy — Run issue-based campaigns to grow mainstream engagement with Mozilla and open web issues.

Each of these strategies ties directly to the goal of empowering people. Yet, as we execute there are still open questions that need input and more thought from the community. For instance, how can we create better scale and participation, recognizing that real impact happens when the community is empowered to take action on policy and advocacy initiatives. A key to this is making our own policy positions and advocacy efforts easier for people to understand and engage with.

We need you to play an active role. Because the web is growing in markets where we are not experts, the Mozilla community will play a central role in scaling efforts to protect the open web throughout the world. We invite you to help shape our thinking by reading the 2015 Policy & Advocacy Plan and offering input through this thread in the Mozilla Advocacy Community.

–Dave Steer, Director of Advocacy, Mozilla

Michael Kaply: distribution/bundles Directory Gone in Firefox 40

Mozilla planet - ti, 19/05/2015 - 20:26

Bug 1144127 was checked in. This means that starting in Firefox 40, placing add-ons in the distribution/bundles directory will no longer work.

For many years I recommended distribution/bundles as the best place for enterprises to deploy non bootstrapped extensions. It allowed them to make their extensions a part of core Firefox and prevent users from removing them. Unfortunately adware/spyware folks started using this method as well, so we lost this ability. (This is why we can't have nice things.)

So what does this mean going forward?

  • You will no longer be able to disable safe mode. You can set the environment variable MOZ_DISABLE_SAFE_MODE_KEY to prevent using the startup shortcut or set MOZ_DISABLE_AUTO_SAFE_MODE to prevent crashes from starting safe mode, but a user will always be able to start Firefox in safe mode from the command line.
  • It's much more difficult for you to prevent a user from disabling any extensions you need to add for your company. You'll probably need to do something evil like hide them inside of the add-ons manager. You can contact me if you need code to do that.
  • AutoConfig now becomes the preferred method of doing pretty much any Firefox configuration (since you can't place a custom extension into the distribution/bundles directory).

I'm actively working on making the CCK2 work without the distribution directory. The latest beta is here. Obviously some features will be lost st first. I hope to bring as many back as I can. It should be ready by the end of the week I hope.

As a side note, this means that many of my blog posts will have incorrect information. I'm still trying to figure out how to solve that going forward.

In my last post I shared a tool for playing with the numbers that matter for growing a product or service. (I.e. Conversion, retention and referral rates).

This video of a talk by Brian Balfour is a perfect introduction / guide to watch if you’re also playing with that tool. In particular, the graphs from 1:46 onwards.

Sitting in the lovely conference hotel Estherea in Amsterdam, I am ready to go to Schipol to fly back home to London. This marks the end of the massive conference tour in beggining May. I can’t believe it all worked out, although I had to re-book one flight and I stayed for two days at each location.

Marco Zehe: Accessibility in 64-bit versions of Firefox for Windows

Mozilla planet - ti, 19/05/2015 - 15:21

Over the past two weeks, Trevor, Alex and I worked on 64-bit support for Firefox on Windows. I am pleased to announce that we were successful, and that Win-64 versions of Firefox Nightly builds should now work with screen readers. So if you have a 64-bit edition of Windows 7, 8.x or 10 Preview, and run NVDA, JAWS, Window-Eyes or other screen readers that support Firefox, you should be able to uninstall the 32-bitz version of Firefox Nightly if you have it installed, and download and run the 64-bit installer from the above linked page.

It is expected that everything works as in the 32-bit version. If, for some reason, you find oddities, we do want to know about them ASAP. We plan to backport support to Firefox Dev Edition (currently at version 40), and maybe 39 beta, but the latter is not certain yet.

So if you use Nightly anyway, and would like to help, we definitely appreciate you switching over to the 64 bit edition and give us feedback! Thanks!

Wil Clouser: Enabling Encryption in Weechat

Mozilla planet - ti, 19/05/2015 - 09:00

Here are some step by step instructions for enabling encryption using crypt.py in weechat.

First, ensure the crypt.py script is installed. The easiest way is from within weechat itself:

/plugin load script /script install crypt.py /script autoload crypt.py

You should see some simple messages saying crypt.py was installed and enabled for automatic loading.

Next you need to generate an encryption key. This just needs to be named with the channel you want to use the key with (I use #channel below). For example:

cd .weechat openssl genrsa -out cryptkey.#channel 4096

We might as well make sure only we can read it:

chmod 600 cryptkey.#channel

At this point typing any text in #channel will automatically be encrypted (use a second client if you'd like to verify it). For example, I typed:

1811 clouserw │ testo

And the other clients in #channel see:

1811 clouserw | +qRy3GsV2sPRlJSdP1IqqV|

The next step is to distribute the key to the other people who will need to decrypt the chat. Take a minute to consider the best way to do this as the chat will only be as secure as this key.

Lastly, you can optionally add an indicator to the status bar by adding 'encrypted' to weechat.bar.status.items. This command will tell you your current value:

/set weechat.bar.status.items

Copy that value and add 'encrypted' where you'd like it to show up. Mine is:

/set weechat.bar.status.items "[time],[buffer_count],[buffer_plugin],buffer_number+:+buffer_name+{buffer_nicklist_count}+buffer_filter,encryption,[lag],[hotlist],completion,scroll"

which looks like this:

[18:16] [32] [irc/freenode] 30:#channel{3}⚑ (encrypted) [H: 3, 4]

That's all there is too it!

Announcement Marks Key Point in Development of Open Source Mobile Ecosystem

San Francisco, Calif. – May 18, 2015: – The Open Web Device Compliance Review Board (CRB), in conjunction with its members ALCATEL ONE TOUCH, Deutsche Telekom, Mozilla, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., and Telefónica, has announced the first handsets to be certified by the CRB. The CRB is an independently operated organization designed to promote the success of the open Web device ecosystem by encouraging API compliance as well as ensuring competitive performance.

The two devices are the Alcatel ONETOUCH Fire C and the Alcatel ONETOUCH Fire E. ALCATEL ONETOUCH has also authorized a CRB lab.

The certification process involves OEMs applying to the CRB for their device to be certified. CRB’s authorized labs test the device for open web APIs and key performance benchmarks. CRB’s subject matter experts review the results and validate against CRB stipulated benchmarks with a reference device to ensure compatibility and performance across key use cases. The two ALCATEL ONETOUCH devices passed the CRB authorized test lab procedure and met all CRB certification requirements.

The process is open to all device vendors whether they are a member of CRB or not. The CRB website www.openwebdevice.org will publish the process for applying for certification.

CRB certification testing is conducted by industry labs authorized by the CRB, with each submission expected to be completed within approximately three days. The CRB offers a platform for the rest of the industry to request certification.

“As an initial founding member of the CRB, we are pleased to know that the Board has achieved one of its major objectives in certifying Firefox OS devices on a standard set of Web APIs and performance metrics,” said Jason Bremner, Senior Vice President of Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “We expect other companies will also certify, improving their product development cycle time while ensuring a compelling user experience and compliance to standard Web APIs.”

“As one of the partners of the CRB and owners of these certified devices, ALCATEL ONETOUCH is excited to witness the solid progress and achievements made by all members,” said Alain Lejeune, Senior Vice President, ALCATEL ONETOUCH. “In the coming year, ALCATEL ONETOUCH will continue to contribute to the CRB and establishment of the Firefox OS ecosystem. This news is not only an honor for us but will inspire more Firefox OS partners to strive for certification.”

“In the last three years Mozilla has proven with Firefox OS that open Web technology is a strong, viable platform for mobile,” said Andreas Gal, Chief Technology Officer, Mozilla. “Certification by the CRB provides a launch pad for those who complete to prove that their device offers a consistent and excellent experience for users, reducing time and cost to qualify across operators and markets. Today’s announcement paves the way for other device makers to reach this milestone.”

“TELEFÓNICA supports the opportunities that an open Web ecosystem delivers to mobile consumers,” said Francisco Montalvo, Head of Group Devices Unit at TELEFÓNICA S.A.. “Having CRB as a product certification scheme helps all the partners guarantee that rich Web content is delivered to certified devices with the right level of quality. We are glad to collaborate on this effort.”

“Deutsche Telekom is pleased to be a close partner with Mozilla, Qualcomm, Telefonica, and ALCATEL ONETOUCH among others in the development of the Firefox OS,” said Louis Schreier, Vice President of Telekom Innovation Laboratories’ Silicon Valley Innovation Center. “As one of the founding members of the CRB, our goal in focusing on API compliance and performance is to establish a uniform set of requirements, test and acceptance criteria, enabling uniform and independent testing by accredited labs.”
