Mozilla Store Selling New Shirts and a Firefox Plush Toy

Tuesday March 30th, 2004

Jesse Ruderman and Ben Goodger wrote in to tell us that the Mozilla Store now has a larger range of Mozilla Gear on sale. The familiar white Mozilla T-Rex T-shirt is now joined by four new upper body garments, some sporting Mozilla Firefox branding. A nine inch (23cm) Firefox stuffed toy is also available. According to the site, the soft plush red panda (firefox is another name for the red panda) has "beautiful faces (sic) and expressive eyes." Whatever. He can be yours for a mere US$15.95 plus shipping and handling. The shirts range in price from US$16.95 to US$21.95. The new items begin shipping in two weeks.

OK< OK< i figured it out *blush* i had previously blocked cookies for their site (store.mozsource.com) and THAT had triggered their internal server error. they would be better off just telling us we need to turn cookies on for their site :P unblocked cookies, cleared cache & shift-reloaded ordering page cleared everything up :)

Well, at least you know where you got it wrong. I ordered t-shirts on 28 October 2004, which were charged to my Visa card immediately, and eventually got a message mid November that they would be shipped on 20 Nov 2004. It's 9 December and I still haven't seen any sign of them. And Mozilla customer service has not replied to my mail querying actual date shipped and any FedEx or APS references. So I was charged for a product that they could not ship at time of charging. Isn't that contrary to the Visa Card merchant agreement?

What really peeves me is that, at time of ordering, there were no notices on the site to suggest there would be delays in supply or shipping. That's just plain poor business practice.

Is there any place that offers better pictures of the product pictures? The pictures there aren't very detailed....

And roseman - I was able to load the order page just fine.

I plan to buy a plush firefox and one of the firefox shirts, but I won't until I can see closeups of the polo and t-shirt so I can decide which one to get...

I'll add my voice here: I'd LOVE to order a Firefox shirt, but being unable to see a closeup of the front (or _any_ picture of the back) really turns me off. C'mon, guys.

Hm, the images they're using are really a little larger, so you can do "View Image" on them and see a little more detail: <http://store.mozsource.co…images/gear/FFBTeeFrt.gif> Still, thats less than ideal.

Well maybe when a few brave folks have actually ordered based on these crappy pictures, they can put up pictures of themselves wearing the shirts so everyone else can see what they actually look like.

There were recently concerns about the poor state of the Mozilla store -- I'm glad it's starting to shape up!

I Might just pick me up one of those stuffed FireFoxs! Would look great on my desk. ^_^

Any chance for someone from Germany to get these? Some kind of reseller or something - since every other "illegal" store has been closed now.....

And yes, I wouldn't like to order these from the US.

There's no preview picture of the t-shirt, and what's even worse; they use PayPal. :(

You can send a check. Too bad you can't transfer money, since intra-european transfers in Euros are free.

I'd buy it if it didn't have the lame "reloaded" slogan and instead used one of the better ones.

Enough of the outdated pop Matrix references.

So what am I going to do if I go ahead and buy the stuffed firefox toy and in a month the Mozilla team changes the mascot and brand to a Dodo bird? ;-)

Sell it on ebay for a bajillion dollars because prices will instantly skyrocket when they change the mascot! There's such a huge demand for these, don't you know? :)

When I go to the store and click the "Mozilla Gear" button on the left nav, it crashes my browser! I'm running the Firefox nightly 2004-03-31. Anyone else experience this?

if you got a page that looks something like: --- HTTP Status 500 - Internal Server Error type Exception report message --- then you probably have cookies turned off or blocked for that site. if your browser actually locks up, well, that is some other problem... :(

Nope --

"Firefox.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows." It's definitely a hard crash. Weird.

RATHER than use MS-IE to oder it *SPIT* maybe in the interim you could try: <http://store.mozsource.com/mailorder.jsp> order by mail (check or money order). if cookies aren't enough, and you do not have mozilla suite or an old netscape... well, order by mail is better than using MS-IE any day of the week :) at least you could get your product before they fix firefox (or fix the web page...)

I just tried the same page with my copy of Firefox at home (2004-02-06 build) and it works fine. Go figure! Wonder what got checked in during March that kills it?
