Previous Action Items

  • laura: decide what to do with no longer supported locales

Answer: in these edge cases lets revert to suggested locales in Pascal's document here:

Action Items

  • JP - support and test right to left
  • JP - make sure we can add specific CSS tweaks for specific languages (for example if in german a word is too long for a button)
  • ckoehler - follow-up with stephen regarding qa contact
  • ckoehler - look in to rescheduling meeting at a decent time for Pascal


  • The search form has a bunch of hidden elements, among them:

<input name="rls" value="org.mozilla:en-US:official" type="hidden"> <input name="hl" value="en" type="hidden">

    • What do we need to fill in there? (Note hl "en" seems to vary from our build locale "en-US")
