Great job all around! This idea has now been delivered. 

But wait, is this the only way my idea will reach the right people? Great question, you! And the answer is, of course not. Mozilla employees will regularly review ideas/feedback based on specific labels & keywords (hint, hint, don’t forget to use those when submitting your ideas)

We hope this clears things up a bit and look forward to hearing more from you 😃
