Is there any other info you need from the marketplace team on this bug to proceed?
We've attached an image file if you'd like to see the updated design.

We should talk about the implementation strategy here, I'm not sure what's being requested.

If we're just going to be linking to a page based on, then there's not really anything to do in Firefox (and I'm not sure I see much benefit to creating an about:apps wrapper). Is this just meant to cover a UX review of the marketplace web page?

I'll schedule a quick 15 w/ yourself, Madhava and Chad now that our pieces are landing.

One of the goals behind this project is to establish a stronger connection between browser and the marketplace delivering desktop games and apps. We'd like to increase awareness that the Firefox ecosystem is growing beyond the browser. So placing this inside the browser is a strategic request for us.

About:Apps is the first step in a much longer program to deliver games and productivity tools via marketplace inside the browser and inside gecko. 

Make sense?
If not, I'll get us together with the product folks.

Talked with Liz (our UX lead on this)

We can stand up a page for you to link to.
We'll work this out on our side.
