Description

a year ago
In the beta program, we received the following great feedback:
----
could you please make this show up as "Firefox Aurora" in the app drawer & "Add to Firefox Aurora" in the share menu? Then it would group alphabetically with the other Firefox versions, which would be really helpful!
----

I think we should indeed rename "Aurora" to "Firefox aurora".

Bug 1306732 - Renaming of the aurora version

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/82460/#review81714

Yeah, I think it makes sense to use the same naming; and that's what we use on Google Play too.

* I was wondering whether the changed order might break use cases of existing users but I can't think of anything
* On my Nexus 6P the new name is cut off on the home screen ("Firefox Auro.."). But I see the full name in the launcher ("Firefox Aurora"). I'll attach a screenshot.
* The icons are now grouped in the launcher but still not ordered by release channel (Firefox, Firefox Aurora, Firefox Beta)

Bug 1306732 - Renaming of the aurora version

Approval Request Comment
[Feature/regressing bug #]: 1241114
[User impact if declined]: "Aurora" instead of "Firefox Aurora". Avoid confusion. Some people didn't understand that Aurora is an early version of Firefox
[Describe test coverage new/current, TreeHerder]:  Sebastian taking it
[Risks and why]: We don't know what we don't know. Some internal code could rely on this but I am not expecting that. The text might be too long in some contexts, we will figure out.
[String/UUID change made/needed]: Not translated.

Update StringHelper.java with the new branding string to avoid Aurora test failures. r=sebastian

I noticed that internally (and in share dialogs) the app is named Firefox Aurora. But it is still "Aurora" in the launcher (and on the home screen). Should we file a follow-up bug for that?

Oh, I thought it was a cache issue on my phone. Sure, let's do it.
