The direction indicator for calls on the Callscreen are pointed the wrong way. This is also a problem in the call log, and anywhere else we use the direction indicators.
Ahmed, am I correct here that this is an issue, or are the current visuals what you would expect?

Stephany, is there a plan to deal with this? We have several potential solutions here that I can think of:
1. (my preferred) Create a new set of icons for RTL that are identical but mirrored.
2. Mirror the icons dynamically. Not sure about the perf implications here. It also artificially limits us to being unable to do anything like just reversing the direction of the arrow, instead of the phone receiver part of the icon as well.
3. Leave them as-is.

Hi Doug - Per the bidi pattern (at, we are not changing iconography for this release. We may do it later if we have more time. During pattern review, icons were not found to communicate time-ordered direction strongly or a critical issue to fix.

For the records, I'd go with solution 1 too, a set of RTL icons that are mirrored when we're using icon-font, but in case of PNG, just mirror and compress the asset. :)
Closing based on Comment 2.

RTL triage: P2 -- will make a best effort to get this into the 2.2 release.
Priority: -- → P2
RTL update: marking required bugs as feature-b2g:2.2+ (and removing blocking flags)
feature-b2g: --- → 2.2+
Per comment 2 and comment 3, I'm closing this for now. If we decide to update our iconography, we can reopen this or open another bug with more details.
