UNLV Firefox users get help

Filed under
Moz/FF

The University of Nevada Office of Information Technology has announced, with great fanfare, its decision to offer technical support for the Mozilla Firefox Internet browser. This week, the Student Computing Support Center on the second floor of the Student Union has been hosting an open house to promote Firefox.

Along with pamphlets containing information about how to import bookmarks and install visual themes and extensions – add-ons to Firefox that include additional features – on both Windows and Mac OS versions of the browser, the open-house featured free food, stickers and several booths set up with notebook computers running Firefox to give assistance to new users.

Student Help Desk Supervisor Cyndi Backstrom said that the open house was set up to let students know about Firefox. “[Students] just think that there’s only Internet Explorer out there,” Backstrom said, referring to Microsoft’s browser, bundled with every version of its Windows operating system since the release of Windows 98.
