Although Mozilla stops development of Firefox operating system on phones in 2015, they did not completely stop all operations. You still want to develop the operating system for tablets, and smart TVs, all-in-one computers, etc.
Now we are going to stop the development of all types of devices. Mozilla officially out.
Date of death of the Firefox operating systems
In the last quarter of 2015, Mozilla Firefox stopped the development of the operating system for smart phones. At the end of January 2016, they moved the Firefox operating system for low priority, making the “Category 3” project. Mozilla working group on that for a while too.
Little Mozilla Declaration
We had ideas of other opportunities for Firefox OS, and perhaps as a platform for discoveries in the world of connected devices, and perhaps the continued evolution of the TV Firefox OS
Continued development until Firefox OS in version 2.6. It was interested in the community in the development of Firefox OS beyond that, for smart phones in particular. Mozilla proceeded to remove the source code for the operating system so it can be handed over to the community of an open source project.
Project Open Source Mobile OS
This is called an open-source project “Boot to Gecko,” or B2G. Boots to Gecko, the engine on the Internet that Firefox browser authorities. Mozilla now remove all traces of Firefox running of the Gecko engine as the system was getting in the way, hindering the development of the Firefox browser.
We need very much to the further development of the basic law, which includes the Gecko, our platform engine on the Internet, as part of the continuous development of Firefox. For the community to continue to work on B2G operating system they will have to maintain the code, which includes a full version of the Gecko base, so you will need to fork Gecko and move forward in the development of self, separate subsidiaries.
Mozilla is aware that the community and the fan base had expectations associated with Firefox operating system. Also apologize that they have no other way to go about it.
In other words, bye bye Firefox operating system, it may resurface again as a mobile operating system open source.
