A Glipse Into The Mobile Firefox Design Process

Designing at Mozilla is an interesting process: We are commited to doing design in the open and involving community in a fundemental capacity, yet we must avoid design by committee. To design in the open, we use tools like IRC, wikis, blog posts, and open bug trackers, yet we also have small face-to-face meetings. The tools we have are a great start, and I think we can do better. I’m just not sure how.

For the latest round of user experience iterations for Firefox Mobile, Madhava Enros and I are recording our discussion sessions. It’s an experiment, so want I have a couple questions for you (1) is this is a useful thing to do—do you find value in seeing into our unfiltered face-to-face meetings, and (2) In what ways could we make it more valuable to you?

Here’s the video and the whiteboard drawings for our session on Preferences, Add-ons, and Downloads in Fennec. I apologize for the poor audio quality (it gets better a couple minutes into the recording). If these turns out to be a useful thing to do, our future videos will be higher quality.

I find this stuff really interesting. I do wish everyone posted their face-to-face conversations like this. However, I realize this is probably a lot of work to set up the video camera, then transfer to computer, and then upload. Thanks for the vid!


It’s definitely interesting to get some insight as to how you arrived at design decisions. But it takes some real dedication to sit through an entire video ;-)

I think that if the goal is to get feedback and/or help from the community, it needs to be in a higher-level and more easily-digestable format. I’d love to see a wiki page that summarizes the current state of the design. It could point to the current mockups, as well as providing some kind of time-oriented, blog-like view that shows how things have progressed.

I know that a log of stuff is in the wiki now, but I have found it a challenge to find the stuff in the first place, and then to determine if it is current.

And a comment on the actual video content: is Fennec going to display the history somehow? Downloads could be shown as a subset of the history list. Or are you considering of dropping history altogether? (Since several studies have shown how infrequently it’s used.)



Ian

I found it interesting. Keep them coming. It would be nice to let viewers annotate the video. In the hope that people will highlight interesting sections making it easier to digest.


I’m blown away that the video has had 300+ views. That, in and of itself indicates that, to echo ChrisJF’s words, getting our face-to-face meetings out is important in making our design process more transparent.

@ Patrick: It takes some dedication to get through our own meetings :) In the next video, we’ve tried to be better about giving structure to our session. When it’s done encoding, I’ll put it up. I’ll also try to link to current designs on wikis, wherever that is possible.

Re: history. At the moment, there is no plans to show history in the mobile edition. It might be available via Weave to be viewed on your desktop.

Ian: We’ll try using Viddler next time to let people comment on the videos and see how it works.

Aww, I wanted to see dancing…

On a more serious note – I’d love to see more of these. 75 min is a long time to sit through without participating, however.



Philip

Re: history: that’s a pity, because mobile is where it’s most needed to re-visit a page. Typing in the Awesomebar is painful, while bookmarking requires you to realize that you will need the page. History is the perfect solution, no?

It’s a talk about solving security problems with people, Ubiquity, making fun of people, and leveraging design with inspiration. You also get to see me attempt to overcome technical difficulties.

Super blog post, I count on updates by you.

Thank you for another essential article. Where else can you get this kind of information to write full way? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information.


The beauty of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and skin the site in such a way that with very little effort never see why the site tick all without limiting the content and efficiency.


This is a smart blog. Really. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. It has a design here that s not too flashy, but makes as big as what you say statement. Great job, in fact.


What you say is absolutely true. I know that everybody must say the same, but I think you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I also love the images you put in here. They fit well with what you re saying. I m sure you will reach so many people with what you say.


This is my first time I visit here. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the fun here! Keep up the good work.


Simple, wonderful what you ve done here. It is pleasing to look you express from the center and your clarity on this significant content can be easily seen. Extraordinary items and expect your future updates.


Aw, this was a message that was really good. In theory I d like to write like this too taking time and real effort to make a good article . but what can I say . I procrastinate a lot and never seem to do something.


Far, this post is very sweet on this important topic. I am in harmony with the conclusions and are eagerly waiting for the update entry. Saying thanks will not just be sufficient, for the wonderful clarity in your writing. I will immediately grab your rss feed to stay informed of any updates. Wonderful work and much success in your business! Please excuse my poor English as it is not my first language.


I can see you put a lot of effort into your blog. Keep posting the good work. Some really helpful information there. Bookmark. Nice to see your site. Thank you!


Great stuff from you, man. I ve read your stuff before and you are too superb. I love what you ve got here, love what you say and how you say it. You make it entertaining and can still stay smart. I can not wait to read more from you. This is really a great blog.

I thought it was going to be a boring old post, but it really compensated for my time. I will post a link to this page on my blog. I am sure my visitors will find that the most useful


Great post! I m just beginning in community management communication marketing and trying to learn how to do it well resources like this article useful. As our company is based in the U. S. , it? S all a bit new to us. The example above is something that worries me as well, how to show your own enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in this regard


Hrmm that s weird, my comment ate. However, I would say it is good to know that someone else also mentioned this as I have trouble finding the same information elsewhere. This was the first place that gave me the answer. Thank you.


Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a very good platform you are using. I m currently using WordPress for some of my sites but looking to change one of them similar to yours as a test platform. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?


With the whole thing that seems to be building within this subject matter, all your viewpoints are generally somewhat refreshing. Even so, I appologize, but I can not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it exhilarating none the less. It appears to everybody that your opinions are generally not completely justified and in actuality you are generally your self not really wholly confident of the argument. In any event I did appreciate examining it.


I see you put a lot of work in this site! Keep writing!


Although I am no noob in the website industry, your site really is something different and features some helpful thoughts. Enjoying it to the fullest! I ll incorporate you in my blogroll, i think it will provide more value to my visitors.


An fascinating dialogue is worth comment. I feel that you must write extra on this topic, it won t be a taboo subject but usually people are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

This is the perfect blog for anyone who wants to know about this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want. HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!


Aw, this was a really great post. In theory I d like to write like this also taking time and real effort to make a good article. but what can I say. I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.


I can see that you are putting a lots of efforts into your blog. Keep posting the good work. Some really helpful information in there. Bookmarked. Nice to see your site. Thanks!


Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it is nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks.


A individual that wishes to become called well educated must look for the top courses that are taught
in universities throughout the country. Some teams
make a culture of bad sportsmanship across the confrontational personality of the
coach. The degree certificates are exactly a similar for on the web and campus students, and rightly so as you have both covered exactly the same course work and passed the identical examinations and interviews.
