Description

3 years ago
We want to ship Firefox Mobile with a good list of search engines for Basque. 

We're going to work towards this in three phases. First, the localization team and the l10n drivers will look at the market for the language and come up with a good set of search providers. Julen, we'll need your input on this, the guidelines for making recommendations are on <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Productization_guide>. 

For en-US, we currently use this set, to which we can fall back in the case of lacking localized alternatives:

> Google (mobile version), Yahoo, Bing, Amazon, Twitter, Wikipedia (slightly different to desktop, 32x32 icon)

We may also want to go with just a subset of the en-US engines, if that's more appropriate for the local market.

Once we decide to use a particular search engine (and we test it on a mobile device), l10n drivers will contact the owner and ask for permission, and for specifics like proper search flags. Julen, we'll likely need your help to at least get the contact information.

For search engines that we already ship with on desktop and that you would like to include in mobile as well, the permission is not needed.  Consider using a mobile version of the engine if one is available.  Also, please make yourself familiar with instructions regarding the <Description/> element at <https://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:Integrated_Search_Instructions>. For mobile, we'll want 64x64 size images, too.

Once we have a specification on what the search engines for Basque should look like, flod (Francesco Lodolo) and the localization team will work on an implementation on that. flod will create and attach patches for the desired changes and get them reviewed. After a successful review, flod will land them. Julen, if you're interested, you could create the patches, too. You'd ask flod for review on those before landing. 

Please don't commit any modifications in browser/searchplugins to the hg repository without a patch reviewed by flod, Stas, Axel or someone else appointed by the l10n drivers. The data here is sensitive to users and our search partners, thus the extra care here.

The Basque team and flod will be driving this bug to completion.

Hi Julen,


I should also note that Mozilla has entered into search agreements with Microsoft and Yahoo in order to provide a wider variety of search options to users. Could we add Bing and Yahoo to that list?
Current searchplugins on Desktop

amazon-en-GB
bing
creativecommons
elebila
eBay-es
google
yahoo
wikipedia-eu

Creative Commons needs to be removed (not working).
In order to include elebila, we'd need a 32px icon. Website doesn't seem in good shape (missing favicon, auto-discovery of searchplugin but the .xml file is missing).

Feel free to add both Bing and Yahoo!

I'll try to contact the owners of Elebila in order to get 32px icon.

elebila32x32.ico

Took it a while but just got the icon from the Elebila owners.
So, the list would be

bing
elebila
eBay-es
google
yahoo
wikipedia-eu

Does it sound good?

Yeah sounds good.

bug1019750.patch

* searchplugins: eBay, Yahoo and Wikipedia are already shipping for other locales. Elebila with the 32px icon can be tested from here: http://l10n.mozilla-community.org/~flod/testsp/
* region.properties: added the same content handlers shipping on desktop, restored l10n note.
