Description

Might become a meta bug. We should review all the links we have in the about:debugging UI and make sure they point to up to date MDN links.

We should first collect all the existing links to help Irene prioritize the documentation work for Remote Debugging, that could start on Apr 15.

We currently have the following links in the UI:

From the quick review above, it seems like we need two new resources:

  • one documentation page to document USB debugging
  • one documentation page for the updated about:debugging UI

with the necessary anchors to get the detailed info about serviceworkers, addondebugging, backward compatibility policy etc...
The main priority between the two is the updated page for USB debugging. The current page is called "https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Remote_Debugging/Debugging_Firefox_for_Android_with_WebIDE" and since we will both have WebIDE and the new remote debugging side by side in Fx68, we will probably need to keep the two pages around for some time.

How do we want to proceed with https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Remote_Debugging/Debugging_Firefox_Desktop ?

We are not linking to this page currently.

Discussion about the documentation on MDN itself should happen on the MDN github issues dedicated for that. Irene, I don't think the GitHub issues for remote debugging documentation have been created yet. Could you share the link here?

That being said we could add a new link in the network location section that points to the new documentation, once it's ready. I think it would be better to have a follow up for this.

I have created an issue for this MDN/Sprints #1346 and added it to the Remote Debugging Epic which I'm using to track the documentation effort.
