Update "Make a donation" link in About Firefox menu
59 bytes, text/x-review-board-request
The "About Firefox" popup menu contains a link to "sendto.mozilla.org" a domain that The Mozilla Foundation hasn't used for collecting donations in about 2 years. Luckily, it's redirecting to "donate.mozilla.org" but we should update the link to use an up-to-date domain (https://donate.mozilla.org) For reference, the URL it has is "https://sendto.mozilla.org/page/contribute/Give-Now?source=mozillaorg_default_footer&ref=firefox_about&utm_campaign=firefox_about&tm_source=firefox&tm_medium=referral&utm_content=20140929_FireFoxAbout"
Can you provide the full alternative URL, or perhaps a patch? The link is hardcoded in: https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/cd7217cf05a2332a8fd7b498767a07b2c31ea657/browser/base/content/aboutDialog.xul#133 and duplicated in the l10n file in a localization comment which we should probably also update: https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/locales/en-US/chrome/browser/aboutDialog.dtd#44 Also, who would be affected by a change here, do we do any monitoring of how many people use that link etc.? Would it need any other review?
Oh, and I forgot to ask - is this critical to get into 57? I assume not, also because the window for doing so is pretty much past, but if it *is* then please yelp.
Hi :Gijs, This is not a priority for FX57, so no rush. I'm working on ensuring that the redirect we have in place on "sendto.mozilla.org" will work for at least another 3 years. It's been a while since I've contributed code to FX, got a link to some getting started material, so I'll know how to test/generate a patch? I'll ask our analytics guru if the link should have any GA tags embedded in the link. unless the infrastructure handling the redirect is counting hits, or firefox has instrumented that link somehow, I don't think we have data on how often that link is clicked.

We're at the stage where the project is 20 years old and we have too much documentation (all outdated in some way, in part because every time someone is annoyed enough to try to fix something, they do it by creating a new page), in part because MDN is horrible at deleting stuff. Please feel free to ping me directly with any questions, in here or on email/IRC/slack. But really, the TL;DR from the commandline should be something like: <install hg> hg clone https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/ cd mozilla-central ./mach bootstrap (pick artifact desktop build, otherwise follow prompts) ./mach build <edit the code you want to edit> ./mach build faster (does a quick rebuild instead of redoing most of the work) assuming it works, commit: hg commit -m "Bug 1413758 - some description, r?gijs" hg push -r . review > I'll ask our analytics guru if the link should have any GA tags embedded in > the link. unless the infrastructure handling the redirect is counting hits, > or firefox has instrumented that link somehow, I don't think we have data on > how often that link is clicked. We don't have any instrumentation in the product beyond the link including GA blobs that, AFAICT, the redirect strips (so as you note, it'd need to be server-side hit-counting or something for us to have analytics of that). Of course, perhaps we want to add some while we're updating the link...
Cade -- appropriate GA parameters for the tracking link would be ... ?utm_source=firefox&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=firefox_about&utm_content=2017_firefox_about
Will: It's unlikely that this change will even make it to a firefox release until well into next year - so I'm not sure if the string "utm_content=2017_firefox_about" makes sense to include
Cade - ah, ok, I thought you were putting it on the short-term "sendto" redirect. In that case, you can of course drop the "2017_" part.
:gijs I think I need to get vouched so that I can push to mozreview - Level 1 access I think? mind vouching for me?
(In reply to Chris DeCairos (:cade) from comment #8) > :gijs I think I need to get vouched so that I can push to mozreview - Level > 1 access I think? mind vouching for me? You shouldn't need to - you can push to the https: version of mozreview without any vouches, per http://mozilla-version-control-tools.readthedocs.io/en/latest/mozreview/install.html . Does that not work? What errors are you getting? Equally I wouldn't mind vouching to give you L1 access if that is somehow simpler, but I doubt it (you'd need to file a bug, generate ssh keys, and then jump through hoops to get it set up locally...).

I tried following the instructions for https pushing to mozreview. In the one-time step it asks me to do, I get the following error: > A SSH connection has been established and your account (email@example.com) was found in LDAP. > > However, Mercurial access is not currently enabled on your LDAP account. > > Please follow the instructions at the following URL to gain Mercurial access: > > https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/about/governance/policies/commit/
I just had to set mozilla.ircnick in my .hgrc it seems? Review is up: https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/196398

I just got back from 3 weeks of PTO yesterday, and am fiiiinally starting to get close to being up-to-date with bugmail... :-)

On it - does any of the documentation you linked earlier explain how to fold csets in hg?
(In reply to Chris DeCairos (:cade) from comment #18) > On it - does any of the documentation you linked earlier explain how to fold > csets in hg? Probably not. I think ./mach bootstrap probably enabled the 'histedit' extension, in which case just running: hg histedit should give you a git-rebase-interactive style thing that lets you fold one cset into another one. (If it's not enabled, hg will tell you; you can enable it easily by adding it under the [extensions] section in .hgrc .)
