This change needs to be made immediately for nightly.mozilla.org and similar pages, and progressively rolled out to other channels as uplifts to 49 occur.

Kohei, this rides to aurora next week. Will this be ready for devedition rollout then?

Liz, I think you're 49 RM? Heads-up that this may affect normal merge-day rollout plans.

Hi Kohei, thanks for the commit.  Is this resolved now?
I will also add it to the release notes that we are dropping support, for aurora 49.

I believe/hope that the commits here were for devedition only. This bug needs to stay open through the 49 cycle so we can make the same change for beta and release at the appropriate uplift point.
OK. Thanks. I will leave it tracked and affected for 49, but no longer a blocker. It seems fairly trivial to put into place now; we just have to remember to do it at the right point in time.

Kohei was this closed prematurely by the robot? Still work to do for beta and release, right?

The bot closed the bug as my pull request has reviewed and committed to master. We still have to push the change to production. The change is 49 only, so Beta & Release should not be affected.

The change is live now.
Andrei, can your team check that this is working as intended for 49 beta? Thanks. 

Marking this as a release blocker since I think we still will have work to do on production for 49 release. Kohei is that correct?

I can confirm that the behavior on Aurora 50 and Beta 49 is correct. I'm not quite
sure about Nightly 51 though, Kohei, Liz -- could you please confirm?

Here's a breakdown:
  - beta.mozilla.org
    - there's no download button available
    - the following message is displayed instead: "Your system
      doesn't meet the requirements to run Firefox."
    - "requirements" points to https://support.mozilla.org/kb/firefox-osx
  - aurora.mozilla.org
   - there's no download button available
    - the following message is displayed instead: "Your system
      doesn't meet the requirements to run Firefox."
    - "requirements" points to https://support.mozilla.org/kb/firefox-osx
  - nightly.mozilla.org
    - a download button is available with the label: "Mac (OS X
      10.9+)"
    - since the download button is not disabled, the build can be downloaded

The change is already on production. How to test:

1. Go to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/channel/ using a legacy OS X system (or just spoof the browser's user agent string)
2. Make sure the Beta and Developer Edition download buttons are disabled with a label, say, " Your system doesn't meet the requirements to run Firefox."

Oh I missed Andrei's comment 21. Yes, those results are correct.

And speaking of nightly.mozilla.org, we don't have any platform detection on that page so the download button is not disabled even on unsupported platforms, as Andrei explained. Since nightly.mozilla.org has been deprecated (Bug 717322), I think that's fine.
Thanks very much, sounds like we can count this fixed for 49 then. I appreciate the extra QA!

Kohei - great, thank you for following up!

Liz - I'm gonna go ahead and set the 49 flag to verified, feel free to ni? me if there's anything else I can help with here.
