Steps to reproduce:

  1. Set browser.proton.enabled to true
  2. Restart Firefox
  3. Click app menu
  4. Click Firefox menu

What happens:

Observe that the labels are different in two places but go to the same place (about:preferences).

Expected result:

Preferences is used widely on macOS - Settings is more of a Windows-ism. Preferences should be the copy in both places.

Has STR: --- → yes

:yoasif, if you think that's a regression, could you try to find a regression range using for example mozregression?

Preferences is used widely on macOS - Settings is more of a Windows-ism. Preferences should be the copy in both places.

It's not a Windows-ism (historically Windows uses Options, IIRC only Windows 10 has Settings), and there are bugs currently fixing other labels.

I assume this makes it a WONTFIX, but leaving the final decision to triagers.

Well, it is newly a Windows-ism. :) That was a throwaway comment though - ultimately, it is out of place in macOS and also internally inconsistent.

Regressed by: 1695671

I don't understand why this got marked as a regression from bug 1695671 - the landing of that bug postdates the filing of this bug, and also fixed the issue raised in the summary of this bug, by making the two labels consistent.

Resolution: --- → DUPLICATE

We're reversing course on "Settings" specifically for the macOS menubar. That work is happening in bug 1698550.
