Social media helps Firefox better understand its users. There are about 14,000 questions/comments on Firefox social media platforms every month. More often than not, when people experience issues with Firefox, they tend to share them on Twitter before submitting bugs or seeking out solutions from SUMO. We're here to help, share our knowledge and build relationships that will empower our users to get the most out of their Firefox experience.

Who we are

We're a community of enthusiastic volunteers and employees trying to support our users around the globe. Your contributions will reach millions of users worldwide, and you can do it from the comfort of your couch. Join us for an incredible adventure!

What do we do

  • Answer users queries and solve their issues on Twitter.
  • Manage posts and comments directed to us.
  • Share positive and uplifting posts about Mozilla and Firefox.

We use an awesome social publishing tool called Respond. It works by segmenting inbound tweets posts and comments by language. It also allows you, as a contributor, to reply to users, to assign posts to yourself, other Social contributors and leads, to tag posts, leave notes on a particular issue, and share content.


The Social team is structured into the following :

Name Role
Support Community Managers
  • Reply to users with support questions
  • Escalate to SUMO and Social Leads
  • Moderate tweets and ban users
  • Add new users into the program and moderate #fxhelp
SUMO / Social leads
  • View escalations and respond to users with the Reply tool
  • Hide report spam users
  • Identify and Tag tweets and Facebook comments with the appropriate tag
