Stage 1: Definition
1. Feature overview
When a user opens the About window for Firefox, the window should say something like "Firefox checked for updates 20 minutes ago, you are running the latest release."
It is important to say when the last check happened and ideally to do the check when the dialog is launched so that time is very near and to drop the version and simply tell them they're on the latest or not.
If a user needs the full version information they can get it from about:support.
This feature is filed as Bug 678775
2. Users & use cases
Asa heard something about a new version of Firefox on the radio and he's not sure if he's got it or not. He opens the About dialog and is comforted to read that he is on the latest version of Firefox as of Firefox's last check 1 minute ago.
- The feature must remove the version number.
- If the user is up to date, the feature must say so
- The feature must say when it last checked.
It is not necessary that the update check is triggered on opening the About dialog. That's a nice to have but not a requirement for this feature. (we already do this.)
If the user is not up to date, the normal updating process should ensue. No changes to that flow are needed for this feature.
