FIREFOX TALES  (about 50 words) 

Meed Alex Miller 

Alex is not your typical 12 year old boy.  In his spare time, he's a bug hunter, and was recently awarded a $3,000 bounty from Mozilla for finding a bug in the system.  He's spent about 90 minutes per day over 10 days searching for bugs.  He's very happy with the check he got in the mail.

Hi Eve. I made some edits below. Please let me know if you want to discuss further or ask why I changed stuff. Also, if something's not included below that's because I didn't change it, not because I'm saying it should be deleted!

Alex isn't your typical 12-year old boy. In his spare time, he hunts for Firefox security threats, and was recently awarded a $3,000 bounty from Mozilla for finding a bug in the system. He spent about 90 minutes a day for more than 10 days searching for bugs, and is very happy with the check he got in the mail!
