The feature page for Account Manager:

http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/accountmanager/

Needs a few changes now that it's clear that it will not be in Firefox 4.0.

* It should note that it's targeted at 4.next, not 4.0. (the important point being not in 4.0, less important to say that it'll be in 4.next).

* The download link should be replaced with a link to download test
builds (the feature is no longer in add-on form, so the current link
is outdated)

We can provide testing builds, though we'd like to have the ability to update them.  Can we have this page link to some area where we can drop new builds?

This seems pretty straightforward. Just a few questions before we proceed:

As far as I can tell, we're not saying anything about a particular version of Fx on this page now (correct me if I'm wrong). Would it be correct to edit the main block of text to be something like:

"When Account Manager is added to a future version of Firefox (after 4.0), you'll have direct control over your online experience by logging in and out of sites directly through the browser. Under your management, the browser will work for you."

I'm assuming you're talking about the add-on download link, not the Firefox download button (on the right). If so, what should that button say?


Mayumi, if you have thoughts on the best way to position any of this, please weigh in!

Yes, that would be sufficient.

Correct, the addon is now old and unmaintained, we have try-server builds for testing now instead.

Come to think of it, it's pretty confusing to have a Firefox download button on the right which won't have Account Manager support.  We should remove that.

I'm not sure what the download button should say. "Download a test build" ?

It feels to me like we might want to be even more explicit that this is not for mainstream users, but I'm not totally clued in on the background of all this.

Other than that, here's the summary of changes. Mayumi, how does this look? 

- edited copy in the main text blurb: ""When Account Manager is added to a future version of Firefox (after 4.0), you'll have direct control over your online experience by logging in and out of sites directly through the browser. Under your management, the browser will work for you."

- change "download add-on" button to "Download a test build"

- remove Fx download promo from the sidebar

Closing old Mozilla.org website bugs due to them not being relevant to the new Python-based Bedrock system. Re-open if this is a critical bug and should be resolved on the new system too.
