Description

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

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. Akmal, 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. Akmal, 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 Uzbek 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. Akmal, 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 Uzbek team and flod will be driving this bug to completion.

Hello Jeff.
I am sorry so late. Can you use old desktop search engines for Uzbek Firefox for Android?
If I found appropriate search engine, I suggest you, But now I can't find any search engines for Uzbekistan.

Yes, that's possible. Desktop is shipping is currently shipping:
amazondotcom
bing
eBay
google
twitter
wikipedia-uz
yahoo

We usually ignore eBay on mobile, so the list would be
amazondotcom
bing
google
twitter
wikipedia-uz
yahoo

As for feed handling, I'll add NetVibes since it's shipping on desktop. Does that sound good?

Bypassing review in this case based on previous discussions:
* using the same searchplugins of en-US, plus localized version of Wikipedia
* standard region.properties + NetVibes as feed reader
