Description

10 years ago
John Slater blogged that the first-run page had changed. This is good. What's not so good is that the fourth slide advertises as follows:

"Try add-ons that will enhance listening to music, simplify photo sharing, block pop-ups, and more."

Ad-block plus doesn't block popups, it blocks ads, and Firefox does pop-up blocking fine by itself. The first-run page should definitely not suggest otherwise.

This is a good point. Steven, when you have a chance please update the copy on this page to read "...simplify photo sharing, improve online shopping, and more."

The "improve online shopping" link should point here:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5202

Thanks,
John

Do I need to file a bug to sync the site to make these changes go live? I'm still seeing the old copy and link here.
