Steven, We'd like to add a promo for Five Years of Firefox on the right hand-side of the page. Is there a way we can do that so it looks similar to the personal.html page (for example)? If that's possible, we'd also like to use a frame of the video as part of the Promo and the blurb would say "Check out Firefox's last five years of awesomeness and see where we're going next".

Created attachment 415529 [details] Mockup of 5-year promo It's proving a bit tricky to fit a screenshot from the video into the sidebar on this page in a way that doesn't stick out too much (it's a narrow sidebar on this page). Any thoughts on the attached mockup that might help push me in some direction? Thanks.
Hi Steven-- Thanks for the Mock-up. Instead of using a screenshot of the video we can use the general video screenshot that we've used on the Firefox homepage (attached) but maybe shrink it to try and fit everything in. The column is definitely narrow but we'd like to keep the general structure of our sidebar promos, with a headline, etc. Headline "Five Years of Firefox" Sub headline: "Check out Firefox's last five years of awesomeness and see where we're going next". If that isn't possible, we should add a text link under "Learn more about:" on the http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/about/whatismozilla.html and the link should say "Five Years of Firefox". This should be a last resort because the page is so hidden... Thanks!
I'd prefer to feature an actual screenshot from the video if possible. The more general one seems a lot less clickable to me.
Can we have this wrapped up early next week? Beta 5 of 3.6 is shipping soon, and it might even be the RC, so it'd be good to have Mozilla.com gelled; thanks!

So Steven, please don't kill me. Can we go back to this version and make a few changes: Headline: "Firefox Turns 5!" Screen shot of Video with play button on it (doesn't have to be the actual video, just links back to the video on the /video page, without the squiggly line border). Sub headline: "Check out Firefox's first five years of awesomeness" Link: "Watch the Video"
I've committed this to trunk in r530919. Is this what you had in mind? http://www-trunk.stage.mozilla.com/en-US/about/
Looks awesome! Only tweak would be if you could show the title card "The story of Firefox" for the screenshot. Otherwise, we're ready to go!
