  1. MDN Documentation available for offline reading

    Would be great if MDN Documentation can be read offline as pdf's, iTunes U or iBooks on smart devices or desktop.

    • Downloadable snapshot (zip archive) of some section like xul ref.

      MDN have many essential documents but we cannot see it offline, cannot search locally, cannot develop without network.
      As Javadoc etc, MDN should prepare downloadable weekly (or monthly) snapshot zip archive of some section like xul ref/tutorial, js ref/guide, dom ref ... etc.
      # actually, migration of xul ref/tutorial from xulplanet to MDN(MDC) was regression about this

      I believe it will not only solve offline development problem, but also reduce daily traffic to MDN.

      • L10n dashboard like Firefox Support site

        Firefox support (SUMO) site have L10N Dashboard page:
        https://support.mozilla.com/ja/kb/Localization+Dashboard
        with this page we can know which page should be translated according to the page view. This is important guide line for translators.
        MDN should have same feature.

        • Get rid of HTTPS when connectiong to MDN

          HTTPS slows down access to MDN content for now good reason.

          • Link to cross-browser documentation wikis.

            I was referred here by a webmaster to suggest that the Developer Network include links to wikis about cross-browser client-side technologies and best-practices. Specifically, I'm representing The HTML & CSS Wiki and the JavaScript Wiki, but if Mozilla were to determine that other wiki(s) are more appropriate I expect we would migrate our content there. The URLs are:

            http://htmlcss.wikia.com/

            http://javascript.wikia.com/

            • cross browser support matrix

              For cross browser support matrices we currently have http://www.quirksmode.org/ as the definitive resource. The problem is that it's not a wiki and has some gaps in it.

              Since MDN is becoming a great resource for HTML/CSS/JS/DOM documentation it would be great if each page had a cross browser support matrix.

              This doesn't need to be done by mozilla, it can be a community effort. But it would be nice if you can set up some standardized space on pages and a standardized layout for the cross browser support information.

              Then the community can fill out all the data as soon…

                          • open up and promote mindtouch API interface! https://developer.mozilla.org/@api/deki/

                            It would be so great to a lot of us who want to do washups with mdn knowladge base to have access and documentation for mindtouch API interface, MDN wiki engine.
                            For example, sites like http://instacss.com (https://github.com/rgarcia/instacss) would't need to scrap mdn anymore!

                            • Create a Dynamic Code Playground

                              Just like Google Code Playground - But using the Mozilla / Firefox characteristics, may only for Firefox users or available in all browsers: Live editing, experimental add-on, command line, bug tracking, and much other. It'll be great.

                              • Add <link rel="search"> to new homepage

                                The old home page at https://developer.mozilla.org/en/ and current pages have a <link rel="search"> to an OpenSearch XML descript file. This feature of the Open Web is documented here:
                                https://developer.mozilla.org/en/creating_opensearch_plugins_for_firefox

                                The new home page, and probably the templates for the child pages, lack this. Since Firefox 4 is keeping both the search box and OpenSearch support, I think it’s better to add it. ;)

                                • try to set a new password in the User Control Panel

                                  When I try to change my password using the MDN User Control Panel > Profile > Edit account settings, I am told that "The current password you entered is incorrect.". I am able to change my email address on this form, using the same current password, but I cannot get it to accept a new password. I think it needs fixing.

                                  • Make the JavaScript reference mobile friendly

                                    I'm actually viewing the html docs in a text-based browser in Emacs, but the principle is the same. The JavaScript reference (and others I assume) do not look good because of the massive site navigation bar at the top of the page.

                                    • where is mozilla should use OSM maps insted of google maps

                                      we should use OSM maps because not every country have google maps enabled and used , and also google plan to sell maps for sites that have a lot visit of maps in a month

                                        • change the 'Popular Web Documentation' page to actually show the full list of web technologies

                                          Showing just three or four is painfully annoying, and the description text beneath each is pointless fluff. If you're here you probably already know what each technology does, and if you really want to keep it then show it using a hover tooltip.
