>> Feature Request Summary:
Lockscreen and homescreen do not rotate in landscape orientation

>> Description of feature, or problem to be solved
I use my phone on a mount in my car. Often, the most convenient orientation for me using maps & audio & etc is sideways or landscape. But, neither the lockscreen nor homescreen rotate in response to this orientation change, and so unlocking the phone or launching an app that does rotate is very awkward.
QA Whiteboard: [foxfood-triage]
Component: Gaia::Feedback → Gaia::Homescreen
Keywords: feature

From UX triage: 

We had considered this in the past and decided against implementing it. Landscaped for homescreen or lockscreen.

Thanks for pinging the UX teams!

Could you include any details on why you decided against it? It's a terrible experience when I try using my FxOS phone in my car or while docked in a charger on my desk.
