I have the latest version of Mozilla Firefox installed and with it came Firefox hello, a messaging app. What I really do not understand about this app is where it is to fetch contacts. There is an ‘import contacts’ button but whenever I click on it, nothing happens. I have also tried to install contacts manually but whenever I click on it, it just disappears. How does this app work and how different is it from Google hangouts?
How do I configure Firefox hello
When you want to add a contact in Firefox Hello, the prerequisite is that the contact must have a Firefox account. If you try and add a contact or import contacts that don’t have a Firefox account, it will fail.
Below I have listed the steps to follow to manage your contact list:
Click on the Firefox Hello button, which is located on the Menu bar.
Log into your Firefox account and click on the Contacts tab which is located on the top right hand corner.
To add a contact manually, click on New Contact. A window will open where you can add the name and email address of the contact.
To import contacts automatically from your Google Account, click on the Import button. In the window that opens up, type in your Google credential and follow the on-screen instructions.
From the arrow next to a contact’s name, you can edit contact details, block a contact or delete a contact
