Description

2 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:49.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/49.0
Build ID: 20160922183953

Steps to reproduce:

1. This is a suggestion to add a default signature when email accounts are set up. Two suggestions are:
a) Get Thunderbird
   ‘Thunderbird’ is a hyperlink: http://www.getthunderbird.com/
b) Sent with Thunderbird
   ‘Thunderbird’ is a hyperlink: http://www.getthunderbird.com/

2. Having a short signature will simplify translation into other languages.

3. Perhaps the http://www.getthunderbird.com/ link could be updated to: https://www.getthunderbird.com/, i.e. http → https. Not sure if this matters as it redirects to:
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/

4. Additionally, would www.getthunderbird.com:
a) redirect to the locale of the device; and/or
b) understand arguments, www.getthunderbird.com/?hl=hu, to redirect to the magyar (Hungarian):
https://www.mozilla.org/hu/thunderbird/

5. The signature should be able to be removed; however, having it as a default will help with the marketing of Thunderbird.

6. It seems that other default signatures people have, and are happy to freely advertise, are:
a) Get Outlook for iOS
   ‘Outlook for iOS’ is a hyperlink: https://aka.ms/o0ukef
b) Get Outlook for Android
   ‘Outlook for Android’ is a hyperlink: https://aka.ms/ghei36
c) Sent from my iPhone
d) Sent from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone.

Thank you

To me this is a clear WONTFIX, but perhaps our marketing people think differently.

We need a category that says "We would not accept a patch for this today, but we might reconsider in the future". I appreciate the forward thinking, ovari21, but it is really critical that we very carefully consider any point where we intrude upon the attention stream of our users. I don't really have time today to consider the issues behind this any deeper than that.

(In reply to Kent James (:rkent) from comment #3)
Thank you Jorg, Kent and Magnus for your responses.

How could 4.a) be implemented? Attachment 8795606 [details] has the code, just needs to be uploaded to www.getthunderbird.com

Thank you

I don't know anything about the getthunderbird.com code, but locale detection is better handled server side, on the end point. Why specify a locale on getthunderbird.com?
