Project updates

Firefox Desktop

  • localization still outstanding
  • need to have a discussion about who drops in terms of l10n coverage; probably for fx8, not fx7
    • pike will bring this up with jonath and tarend

Firefox Mobile

  • same problem as desktop
  • langpacks are still being discussed between pike, tarend and wes


  • New localized Mozilla newsletter subscription block in the footer, 44 locales already have it on production (would be interesting to know the subscription numbers)
  • Worked on the implementation of firefox/fx and firefox/new download pages, the /new page is a simplified design that won A/B testing we did in June/July with Gregory Jost, not on production yet because there is a remaining caching bug (UA is cached) and since the mozilla.org/com merge webedv is waiting on a new testing infrastructure to debug that (bug 682398). Once the bug is fixed, we will publish that, in Q4 the second part will be to update the messaging for the European locales Gregory is in charge of (another round of A/B testing)
  • side note: 63 locales have a plugincheck page on production, Kev Needham is very happy about it and thanks our community



  • no updates


  • the webapp marketplace is coming
  • no good solution to addons localization yet
    • babelzilla is shutting down :(
  • when should we turn locales off on AMO?
    • as AMO gets new strings and updates, more locales become out of date. wil would like to turn them off below some threshold
    • wil will email the .web newsgroup to ask the localizers to weigh in


Other engagement projects



  • stas cleaned up the project list on Verbatim a bit; removed EOL'ed projects
