partial-platform de-beta

  • fix to product-details required
  • impact on download experience:
    • all.html - listed twice? all.html#or breaks then

Talking point: L10n of Firefox 4 beta - call to arms?


  • Post-Summit Mortem
  • In London, set up mobile phone number, home internet, and visited a "hotelling" spot called "The Hub" as a possible "office" where I can work.


  • prepared Fx4beta firstrun page for l10n (including rtl support)
  • added video subtitling system for beta pages
  • kept cleaning up mozilla.com repository, now down to 500GB (from 1.1GB 2 weeks ago)
  • fx 2/3/3.5 in-product pages all merged to 3 folders now
  • created an oldversion folder with a call to upgrade to the latest version, used as the single whatsnew page for Fx versions no longer supported
  • fixed localized all-beta pages to handle a fallback to en-US download box since this is the first time we have an en-US only beta release


  • Got a lot of feedback on our KB from localizers during the summit, which will be reflected in the new SUMO version. New mockups here
  • We will start end user support with Firefox Beta 3
