Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; ja-JP-mac; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; ja-JP-mac; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0

When clicking on the "Get More Search Engines..." in the Search Engine Manger, ja-JP users are sent to the English AMO page.  We'd like for them to go to a newly created Japanese language add-ons showcase page instead.  Once the Japanese localized AMO is launched, we're happy to switch that back, but in the interim we'd like the first redirect to go to this page:

http://mozilla-japan.org/addons/firefox/

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use search engine manager in ja-JP Firefox 2
2. "Get more search engines..."
3. get sent to English AMO page

Actual Results:  
user is sent to
https://addons.mozilla.org/search-engines.php

Expected Results:  
user should be redirected to 
http://mozilla-japan.org/addons/firefox/
Component: Search → www.mozilla.com
Product: Firefox → Websites
QA Contact: search → www-mozilla-com
I'm fine with that in principle -- is that really a search-engines page or an all-add-ons page?  If the latter, maybe we should point get-more-{extensions,themes,dictionaries} there as well?

Mike, it is an all-add-ons page.

Yes, we should point those Japanese users to AMO.  Please let us make that change.
http(s)://ja(-JP-mac).add-ons.mozilla.com/ja(-JP-mac)/firefox/2.0/extensions/
should be redirected to http://www.mozilla-japan.org/addons/firefox/extensions/
http(s)://ja(-JP-mac).add-ons.mozilla.com/ja(-JP-mac)/firefox/2.0/themes/
should be redirected to http://www.mozilla-japan.org/addons/firefox/themes/

http(s)://ja(-JP-mac).add-ons.mozilla.com/ja(-JP-mac)/firefox/2.0/search-engines/
should be redirected to http://www.mozilla-japan.org/addons/firefox/search-engines/

http(s)://ja(-JP-mac).add-ons.mozilla.com/ja(-JP-mac)/firefox/2.0/dictionaries/
should be redirected to http://www.mozilla-japan.org/addons/firefox/dictionaries/ (coming soon)

Mike, do we have to wait for 1.8.1.1 for this or can we change the redirect immediately?
We shouldn't need to wait on anything in the software side.
Now we have 120+ localized extensions, 50 themes and 40+ local search engines listed on our add-ons site. Please set up redirects based on comment 3.

Confirmed. Thank you Jeremy!
Unfortunately, https://ja.add-ons.mozilla.com/ja/firefox/2.0.0.1/extensions/ is redirected to the AMO. Also for themes, dictionaries and search-engines.

Jeremy: Could you redefine your .htaccess to support any minor version of Firefox 2? Thank you.

We'll provide the Thunderbird 2 Add-ons mini site like Firefox. Can you setup these redirects?

http(s)://ja(-JP-mac).add-ons.mozilla.com/ja(-JP-mac)/thunderbird/2.0.0.x/extensions/
-> http://www.mozilla-japan.org/addons/thunderbird/extensions/

http(s)://ja(-JP-mac).add-ons.mozilla.com/ja(-JP-mac)/thunderbird/2.0.0.x/themes/
