We're already halfway into October, so please let us apologize for the delayed note. Foxkeh's October wallpaper is now available. This month, Foxkeh is feasting on some fall fruits and may have eaten a bit more than he should have. If Foxkeh gets too fat, he'll start looking like a racoon! Foxkeh, please don't eat too much =^_^=.

Foxkeh, who was born on September 1st, 2006, is now 3 years old! Before we even knew it, Foxkeh had 32 wallpapers created for him, and this 33rd wallpaper celebrates Foxkeh's third birthday. Please remember, as long as you are not using Foxkeh for commercial profit, and you credit Mozilla, you're free to use Foxkeh in your own way. The design of Foxkeh seems pretty simple at first, but to draw Foxkeh yourself is harder than it looks. The staff of Mozilla Japan tried to draw Foxkeh but he ended up looking like a cat or a dog, not like the red panda that he is. If you are drawing your own Foxkeh, please feel free to use the Foxkeh images and body parts that are distributed on the download page. Happy birthday to Foxkeh and thank you to everyone who loves him and shares him with your friends and family. Foxkeh appreciates your love.

The official release of Firefox 3.5 is almost here.

At Mozilla Japan, we have been planning a project to promote the new version of Firefox. Today we have started the Discover Shiretoko campaign along with the non-profit Shiretoko Nature Foundation of Hokkaido, Japan.

As some of you may know, each version of Firefox has a code-name that is the name of a national park. The code name for Firefox 3.5 is "Shiretoko" which is taken from the name of the Shiretoko National Park in Northern Japan.

In addition to promoting this new version of Firefox, we wanted to also take this opportunity to co-promote the beautiful natural forests of Shiretoko, Hokkaido which were given UNESCO World Heritage status in 2005.

Why is Mozilla collaborating with a non-profit nature conservancy organization? In fact Mozilla and this organization have a number of common goals and you can read 4 stores about Firefox and Shiretoko at the Discover Shiretoko site.

In addition, in order to get more people to know about both the Shiretoko national park as well as the new version of Firefox, we've started a web banner campaign called "tree banner." This banner uses the Canvas element to grow a "virtual tree" on your site.

In addition you can see all of the other people who have registered at Discover Shiretoko to grow a virtual tree on their own site at the interFORest site which shows all of the virtual trees growing on a virtual map of the Shiretoko peninsula.

For more details on the banner campaign, please go to the Banner Campaign site at Discover Shiretoko.

To see a map of all the participating websites, please go to the interFORest site.

We hope you will support both Firefox 3.5 and Shiretoko with these banners on your website or blog.

Welcome to new visitors from Lifehacker: Monthly Firefox-Themed Wallpapers with Embedded Calendars.

Apologies for the delay as Foxkeh was out on vacation during Golden Week. This month's wallpaper features the spring blooming Lysichiton which is native to the Shiretoko National Park. Did you know that Shiretoko is also the code-name for the upcoming Firefox 3.5 browser? Foxkeh is enjoying the spring rays of sunshine and is frolicking in the park with a butterfly. Now that the long winter has ended and spring has arrived in Shiretoko, Foxkeh is eagerly looking forward to playing in the park. Please download the May 2009 Foxkeh wallpaper and share it with friends.

Please let us apologize for the delayed announcement. The November Foxkeh wallpapers are now available. This month, the theme is ice hockey, which is a winter sport most popular in North America. As it is sometimes called a "martial art on ice" will Foxkeh be ok in this rough-and-tumble sport? Although Foxkeh is not wearing his helmet in this image, of course in a real game he would wear his helmet for safety. Also Foxkeh can use his flaming tail to block attacks, so he would be a formidable opponent.

Two years ago on September 1st, 20068, Foxkeh was born (Japanese blog post.)

Today, we're happy to announce both the 2nd birthday of Foxkeh as well as the release of the Foxkeh theme for Firefox 3.
