Mozilla (the creators of Firefox) has been working on a new Mobile Operating System called “Gecko”. This video will show you how you can install it on your computer to test it out.

How To Install


The Firefox dev platform is made to run on Mac and Linux, so it’ll be easier to install. You can find a simple guide here. But basically the process is as follows:

Firefox Mobile OS

  1. Download the latest B2G isntaller] for your Operating system (you can find nightly builds here).
  2. Use Git to download a Gaia profile for the Firefox OS to use.
git clone git://
  1. Use GCC to actually compile the profile
make -C gaia profile
  1. On Linux, use the command below to launch the program, where /path/to/b2g is the actual path to the desktop build on your machine
/path/to/b2g -profile gaia/profile
  1. On a Mac, use the command below to launch the program, where <your username> is your Mac username
/Applications/ -profile /Users/<your username>/gaia/profile


Since windows doesn’t have a build in option to “make” the profile, we kind of have to use a workaround. Otherwise, it’s essentially the same.

  1. Download the latest B2G isntaller] for your Operating system and unzip it to your computer (you can find nightly builds here).
  2. Instead of installing “git”, I’ve uploaded a gaia-profile to my website that you can download.
  3. Unzip the gaia-profile to your b2g folder that you downloaded
  4. Also, in your b2g folder, right-click on b2g.exe and choose “create shortcut”
  5. In the “target” textbox, add -profile “C:\<path to your b2g folder>\gaia-profile”. Essentially it will look something like this:
C:\Users\<your username>\Desktop\b2g\b2g.exe -profile "C:\Users\<your username>\Desktop\b2g\gaia-profile"
  1. Double click on the shortcut and it should load the interface

A Word Of Warning

This release is not meant to be an entirely functional version. If you’re not a curious early adopter, there’s no really reason to download and try this. It’s only for those that want to see what Firefox is up to.
