Bug Fix in Firefox 

Hey all,

This was my first bug fix.
The bug was to add a new word ‘quinoa’  into Firefox dictionary.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=704394#c1

A few things that I learned :

1) Building and installing from source
2) Keeping in contact with the mentor and updating him every 2-3 days.
3) Creating a patch and asking for review
4) Updating the tree every time you do new stuffs
5) Working around multiple bugs that may cause weird patches 🙂
6) Reading source code
7) IRC
8) Proper documentation
9) Gained an inner strength to go further

Thanks to Vipin sir, Adithya ettan and Arvind ettan who helped me to get started with bug fix.
Also thanks to  ‘SS’ of ‘SSS’  🙂
