Mozilla lit up Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last year with its flashy debut of Firefox OS, the light, browser-based mobile operating system intended to sweep across emerging markets as a low-cost Android alternative.

While several handsets did see the light of day, including the Alcatel OneTouch Fire and a trio of Geeksphones, the OS certainly felt underbaked to us.

Now, Mozilla will return to the mobile megashow with a press conference to spread its message like wildfire, and to show off its latest progress and products. We'll be there on the ground, following the action.
