How to host an event

So you decided to host an event, congratulations! Your efforts will help Firefox to have a successful launch in your region. You haven’t organized an event before? Don’t worry, you can find everything on how to organize an event on this event guide.

Workflow

  • Introduction talk, why this work is important for Firefox in your region
  • Ask the attendees to watch this video explaining what issues they should report
  • Participants install Firefox Beta for Desktop
  • Check this list of the 200 most famous website in your country and choose the website you want to test (NSFW websites are marked red - do open in your responsibility). If you can’t find your country you can also check the Alexa list. Please don’t start at the top to make sure we do not only test the first 10.

  • Keep doing the awesome work and make Firefox better!
