In a post on the Mozilla Hacks blog about this latest initiative Robert Nyman explains:

We’ve been looking into various ways to make it as easy as possible for developers to express their thoughts and opinions on a number of topics, and also for how we at Mozilla can be as transparent as possible around the projects we work on.

Having evaluated third party as well as Mozilla's own services for gathering thoughts and ideas from users it has opted for the UserVoice service for its new feedback channels. The advantages of this service is that all you need to join in is a user name and email address and you'll instantly be able to propose ideas.

Even if you don't have an idea of your own you are provided with 10 votes you can use to support ideas made by others, using 1, 2 or 3 votes per idea.

You can search existing ideas and can also comment on ones already proposed. Best of all you'll see the Mozilla response - which may be a green Stared flag, a yellow Planned one or, as above, Under Review - and if you are providing feedback, having feedback about your suggestions is a really good motivator.

Firefox Developers Tools ideas seems to have got off to a good start. It is easy to use and seems to be being well used.
