I'm having a hard time confirming this bug, there is no 'My Profile' link in the homepage.
Was that a reference to the view profile link?

Browse functional areas screenshot

Sambit, the Browse Functional Areas section appears on the homepage when a user is logged in (screenshot attached). Are you suggesting this section should appear somewhere else in addition?

William, the Browse Functional Areas, according to me it should also be provided in 'View Profile'. It would let others also see in your profile and know what allfunctional areas the user is present in. Sorry for the late reply.

Suggested implementation of better "Browse Functional Areas" functionality:

a) Create a page dedicated to listing the functional areas, just like we have a page dedicated to listing groups (/groups)

b) Use the new groups list view (bug 859973) as a starting point for a functional areas list view

c) In addition to the group name and member count, an item in the functional areas list will include the description, e.g. "Boot to Gecko (B2G) is a project with the goal of building a complete, standalone operating system for the Web. It is not a product offering yet, but we are working on transforming it into one." Items will list to the functional area page.

d) Link to the functional area list from the new logged-in homepage (bug 867416)

This code must be built on the homepageredux branch of mozillians, and we're hoping for a PR on 6/7. Thanks!

Additional specs...

* The string at the top of the list should be:
"View Mozillians, Stewards and information for any functional area. Find out who works on what and how you can help out."

* The header on the page should be:
"Functional Areas"

* The URL should be:

* There's a new groups view in homepageredux as of 6/4 that should form the basis for this one.
Change to comment 6: 

* the URL should be:
