Create an in-content (non-web-accessible) about page that support (both SUMO and third party tech support) can use to help users with problems.

Should include basics like profile location, OS, buildID as well as details like installed addons & plugins, values of certain prefs, &c to help debug user issues.

Current Status

2009-08-31: SUMO team currently creating a list of diagnostics items that would help our support community troubleshoot users more efficiently. Should have the list finalized for the Firefox team's consideration by the end of this week.

  • Must be accessible from a menu. Not just from the location bar.

Non Goals

  • Exhaustive listing of browser state
