Recall Baidu Search Update system add-on outside of zh-CN


(Firefox :: System Add-ons: Off-train Deployment, task, P4)

66 Branch





(Reporter: jscher2000, Unassigned)


User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0

Steps to reproduce:

Firefox 66.0.x with locale en-US has default setting of

extensions.systemAddon.update.enabled => true

Actual results:

Received the system add-on "" which is not applicable outside of zh-CN.

Expected results:

Not receiving unnecessary system add-ons. We have one user a bit freaked out about it on SuMo.

Component: Untriaged → Add-ons Manager
Product: Firefox → Toolkit

I see it was intentional to send to all locales:

Component: Add-ons Manager → System Add-ons: Off-train Deployment
Product: Toolkit → Firefox

I thought newer versions were deployed with Normandy and filtering by locale. That said, the actual code doesn't do anything if Baidu isn't present, so it's not actually impacting that user...

based on comment 4, sounds like there is no harm done - so can we close this bug?

These pushes are moving to Normandy for current versions in Q1 of next year (will still be balrog on legacy versions - based on code and changes needed landing in 71+) - so this would have still been balrog and we don't have easy ability to filter easily to particular region.
