It can be challenging to find out where Firefox is installed from a user since there seems no way in the UI to get it and when a user has multiple installs they might not know which one was started by the OS.

I'd like to add the path to the Firefox binary to about:support.

Bug 1555366: Add the path to the running binary to about:support. r=flod,jaws

Beta/Release Uplift Approval Request

  • User impact if declined: Tracking down issues with profile-per-install is a lot easier if I can easily get the path to the firefox binary. This is not always trivial for the user to find so having it on about:support makes things a lot easier.
  • Is this code covered by automated tests?: No
  • Has the fix been verified in Nightly?: Yes
  • Needs manual test from QE?: No
  • If yes, steps to reproduce:
  • List of other uplifts needed: None
  • Risk to taking this patch: Low
  • Why is the change risky/not risky? (and alternatives if risky): This is a simple change to about:support, no functionality outside of that.
  • String changes made/needed: Adds one string to abouSupport.ftl.

I'm afraid it's late to be adding new strings in beta. (If this is critical it might be acceptable to hardcode the english version? Would need flod's signoff either way.)
