Firefox is lacking brand presence from high altitudes, making it difficult to gain traction with observers in passing spacecraft and hyper-intelligent space-faring races. It is well established that crop circles are used as a cost-effective channel for communicating to these audiences, and the Firefox logo -- being a circle -- seems to be a natural fit for this form of high-bandwidth consumer messaging.

1. Climb to 10,000ft
2. Look down.


Firefox crop circle.

Apparently there is already some grassroots movement towards resolving this issue (see:, so I'm hopeful that this will be resolved in time for Firefox 2.

This will not go unpunished.

Something weird just happened... I fell asleep in Manhattan and woke up in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. I can't explain it, but I think something is about to happen.

I have seen the cirlce, and the circle is great...

Well folks, the aliens have landed. We just got confirmation that the image was viewable from 10,000'. See URL for more details.

Any way to get google to get digital globe to get a new image of that area so we can view it on google earth? Now that would be sweet!
Comment 8 User image Alex Polvi 2006-08-15 08:22:15 PDT
The whole time we sensed something looking down from above.... no confirmation though....

I have no idea why you got those messages, but I coppied the images that were being pulled from to the local server so it shouldn't be a problem any more.

I'm not convinced. Most crops are green. That looks like an old brown carpet mill reject.

Oats are not green here in the valley.

Here is an impossible to photoshop angle taken while landing at the site.

Suggest for next trunk: Change app name to FireFlax.
Comment 18 User image Ian Macfarlane 2006-08-16 02:38:52 PDT
I'd suggest FireStOat :)

I've always wanted to file a bug like this. But I was afraid I'd be chastised by the Bugzilla police.

Shouldn't we mark this as VERIFIED?
Comment 22 User image Marek Stępień [:marcoos, inactive] 2007-03-20 16:35:53 PDT
Yup! :)

Comment 23 User image Ian Macfarlane 2007-03-21 03:03:41 PDT
I don't know, it's probably gone by now. Perhaps it needs to be reopened ;)

This hasn't been fixed in Thunderbird.

The bug calls for a *Firefox* crop circle.
Comment 26 User image Richard Quadling 2007-04-19 04:53:36 PDT
Thank you.

Nothing more, than just ...

Thank you.

This is a Firefox 2 crop circle! We need a Firefox 3.5 crop circle!
Comment 28 User image Gábor Stefanik 2011-05-26 14:39:38 PDT
You mean Firefox 4? Firefox 3.5 is old as hell now.
Comment 29 User image David [:auscompgeek] 2011-05-26 16:43:24 PDT
In that case, we need a Firefox 7 crop circle!
Comment 30 User image Tobias (:Tobbi) Markus 2012-05-26 05:28:47 PDT
Actually, we need a Firefox 15 crop circle. ;)
Comment 31 User image Krishna Kumar Deep [:KKDeep] 2013-06-24 10:33:12 PDT
And now Firefox 21 crop circle. :D
Comment 32 User image Kristofer 2013-09-20 03:11:15 PDT
I think you mean a Firefox 23 crop circle.

Naah...Firefox 24 ;)
Comment 34 User image Victor 2014-04-03 19:32:56 PDT
You're going to need a totally different crop circle for Firefox 29 now that Australis is here! ^_^
