Right now Firefox Suggest strings are hardcoded in at least a couple of places, UrlbarProviderQuickSuggest.jsm, the search preferences UI, and potentially UrlbarView if the current diff in D114203 lands. We should follow the example of search interventions and put Firefox Suggest strings in a Fluent file that is not (yet) exposed to localizers. Judging by the that packages the interventions file, such "localizations" are called "previews".

This spun out from

Summary: Add preview Fluent files for Firefox Suggest → Add a preview Fluent file for Firefox Suggest

The feature name and "{$engine} Suggestions" strings are being added in bug 1725289. We still have the about:preferences#search strings, the onboarding dialog strings, and "Sponsored" and "Recommended", so we can keep this bug open until we decide what to do with them.

The top-hit bug is adding a new string, so I'll take this bug first instead of hardcoding yet another Firefox Suggest string.

This adds preview localizations for remaining Firefox Suggest strings.

I removed support for payload.helpTitle and sponsoredText. The helpTitle
code comment says it's useful for experiments with hardcoded strings, but we're
not shipping experiments as extensions anymore, and in-tree experimental/
in-development features should use preview localizations AFAICT.

Covered by existing tests:

  • browser/components/urlbar/tests/browser/browser_helpUrl.js
  • browser/components/urlbar/tests/browser/browser_quickSuggest*
  • browser/components/preferences/tests/browser_searchQuickSuggest.js

Depends on D122550
