Fx20: Private and Personal
Key Selling Points
- Private browsing
- Personalization (about:home)
Listening to direct feedback from our users, since both main stories (private browsing and customizing the about:home page) have been listed as one of the top 3 user requests on a consistently regular basis for months and months. We have listed, and now we have implemented!
Product & Feature Requirements
Private browsing mode (per tab)
- This has been a 'Top 3 requested feature' almost every week since Fennec was (re)launched
- Aligns with Firefox's own values and mission around user-controlled privacy
- Per-tab private browsing mode
- UX designs (Ian Barlow)
- As a user I want to invoke a private browsing mode session so my friend can use my browser without messing up my history/awesomebar/homescreen.
- As a user I want to invoke a private browsing mode session so I can research Christmas gifts for my spouse without that ending up in my history/awesomebar/homescreen.
- As a user I want to be able to open a link from a page in a normal browsing session in a private browsing session, so I can look at it without it ending up in my history/awesomebar/homescreen.
- As a user I want it to be very clear when I am in a private browsing session, so I don't accidentally search for or look at things I think are private but are actually in a non-private browsing session.
- As a user I want to be able to close all of my private browsing tabs completely and at once, so I can get rid of them all very quickly without it being obvious what I'm doing. Note: current menu design closes all tabs, both private and normal at once

- Users can edit any thumbnail position with their own link

- Clearing customised thumbnail data infers that that thumbnail position can be replaced with a top-frequented site

- As a user, I want to be able to add new sites on about:home, so they're always there when I need them.
- As a user, if I "edit" an existing dynamic topsite, it should become a pinned site when I finish editing.
- As a user, I want it to be visually obvious which site thumbnails are pinned and which are dynamic topsites.
- As a user, I want to be able to unpin sites from about:home, so they will make room for new pinned sites or top sites.

Media decoding (H.264) GB & HC
- Due to Flash no longer supported by Adobe, we are filling a hole wherever we can to try and provide as much media support as possible. This also brings into parity with H.264 support we already introduced on JB and ICS.
- Support H.264 on Ginberbread
- Support H.264 on Honeycomb
- As a user, I can go to a site that supports H.264 content and play that back on my device that runs Gingerbread, so that I have a seamless media viewing experience.
