Description

We have a content provider URI to integrate with the system search feature. This was removed in KitKat, but we should figure out if anyone using earlier releases is using it at all. If not, then Bug 1111220 is an easy sell.

I'm kind of lost here.
Could you guide me as to how to approach?

Take a look at this commit for inspiration:

https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/515dbeff1513

You probably want a simple counter type:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Performance/Adding_a_new_Telemetry_probe

There's a complication, which is that we don't expect Gecko to be running when the content provider is being used. Bug 1042956 has a solution for that.
As Richard points out, this is not as easy as it should be.

I'm going to make an executive decision here:

Given that the feature is no longer supported, and on Android versions where it is supported it is off by default (you need to go into the Google Phone Search settings and enable Firefox support), we can skip the Telemetry data and just start the process of removing the code.

I am closing this bug. Move on to the next step.
