We should think about showing something different than our default homepage as first-run page, e.g. the relnotes.
Yes, would be good.
Created attachment 405472 [details] [diff] [review] Use relnotes instead This makes us go to the relnotes on first run (redirects to the "get involved" page for nightlies). I know this is a locales file, but it doesn't break anyone and if locales don't adapt to it, there's nothing bad that happens, so IMHO it should be OK even with a hard string freeze in place.
Comment on attachment 405472 [details] [diff] [review] Use relnotes instead oops, want 2.0 approval, have no time machine around right now to push into beta.
Hmm, I am now directed to that exact URL on first-run (tried with Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; U; Warp 4.5; en-US; rv:18.104.22.168pre) Gecko/20091014 SeaMonkey/2.0pre), with %VERSION% still as part of the URL! This leads to a 400 Bad Request. Should that not somehow get replaced by the actual version number? Or is there something server-side still missing?
Uh, that doesn't sound good... are we not using the urlformatter like Firefox does?
Right, we don't. reopening. I should have a fix to use the formatter here.
Created attachment 406341 [details] [diff] [review] use the formatter This patch makes us use the formatter for this one, I tested it with a profile that correctly ended up with the following output: Document http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/seamonkey2.0pre/ loaded successfully (and I was correctly redirected to the get-involved page)
Thanks for the fast r/a, pushed as http://hg.mozilla.org/comm-central/rev/9db84f526a83
