 Firefox OS and get a Geeksphone Keon

Mozilla is going all out to attract developers to its fledgling mobile operating system – Firefox OS. The company has announced a new campaign on the Mozilla Hacks blog, dubbed Phones for Apps for Firefox OS.

Essentially, whoever develops an app for Firefox OS and gets it on the Marketplace will get a free Firefox OS Developer Preview device to work with. To be eligible for this, you have to send your app development or porting proposal to Mozilla, and if your proposal is accepted, you will get a Geeksphone Keon for free. The campaign is set to end at the end of May or when the stocks of the Geeksphone Keon run out, depending on which happens first. The Geeksphone Keon is an entry level handset.

“When Firefox OS phones become available to consumers in select locales this summer, you’ll have an opportunity that only comes around once—a first-mover advantage in Firefox Marketplace,” reads the blog post. “End users in Latin America, Eastern Europe and other launch locations will be on the lookout for playful and practical apps to install: games, tools, and utilities as well as locally relevant news, sports, travel, entertainment, review apps, and social sharing experiences.”

Check out the Phones for Apps for Firefox OS page for the app proposal form. While the form has some space for optional entries, such as whether you plan to port an existing HTML5 app or build a new one, the required fields include contact information and description of the app.

Okay, webpages do load, however they either have a very very long time, or i must refresh frequently to have it to load. 50% of your time i’ll get server unavailable messages (despite the fact that im certain internet is working fine). Almost every other internet related program on the pc works fine, just opera is failing (and then any other web browser, though i only like using opera).. what is leading to this and just how could i repair it? (In addition, i dont think its proxy related)

    On side note, my default browser is stuck to and im not able to alter it.

    My house page is^ . I have learned this might be virus related but ive run 12 different anti-adware and spyware scans and removed something that had a remote possibility of as being a virus.

    since i have have observed that my opera takes very lengthy to look after i click to spread out.

    sometimes greater than 30 secs I have to wait.

  4. about:config may be the configurations for opera, what must i alternation in there to really make it better/cooler?

  5. I have to determine if mozilla opera is protected and when it’s much better than ie
