STR: 1.) Visit https://www.mozilla.org/ 2.) See if you get opted into the homepage redesign experiment and get redirected to: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/?v=a If so, proceed to step 3, else clear your cookies and try step 1 again 3.) Click on the 'About' link in the main navigation Expected results: Navigate to the /about page Actual results: You get kicked and redirected back to the home page again. This seems to happen for multiple URLs, but not every page. I can't seem to visit: /about/ /firefox/dektop/ /firefox/new/ /firefox/android/ and more .. all seem to redirect back to the home page again.
I've logged into Optimizely and paused the experiment called "[Bug 1275626] Home page design, Concept A". Sorry to have to do this, but I think it's best until we figure out what's not quite right.
I think the problem might be the targeting URL matching and page on the site? ^.*www\.mozilla\.org\/en\-.+\/$
Looking at past experiments, it seems for the homepage a "simple match" has been used as opposed to a regexp: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/ (simple match) Perhaps this is all that's needed (?), but I'll defer to Jon/Craig as I'm not as familiar with Optimizely.
I also noticed that the en-GB page does not show the survey link: https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/?v=a Looking in the code, the survey gets included for en-US only: https://github.com/mozilla/bedrock/blob/master/bedrock/mozorg/templates/mozorg/home/home-a.html#L271 I'm not quite sure if this is another issue or intentional (should the experiment should be targeting en-US only?).
The regex was overly aggressive. It would match /en-ANYTHING as long as a / was the last character. I should have caught this during review, but was hurrying to get things launched yesterday. Making waste with the haste. :( Changed the experiment URL to a simple match of https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/.
Previous data has been cleared and experiment has been re-started.
Received variation through experiment and confirmed other links  are no longer intercepted.  Tested /about/, /firefox/new/, /firefox/desktop/, /contribute/, and /privacy/.
