Since a while, choosing an Android or Maemo version of an article shows the Windows version of the text. You can test this behavior at https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/templateopen-add-ons. There is no difference in the shown text for Android/Maemo and Windows.

This has disadvantages if you are using extra text for Firefox Mobile which doesn't work anymore.

At https://support.mozilla.com/de/kb/Template:optionspreferences/revision/10331#os=win&browser=fx4 you can see another weird behavior.
When using a FOR NOT/FOR to separate non-Android and Android text versions, only the Android version will be shown. Some days before when I made this changes for Android (20.02.2011) all works very well and I was happy because of this cool FOR feature. Now this doesn't work anymore.

Another example at page https://support.mozilla.com/de/kb/Template:aboutconfig#os=mac&browser=fx4

I added the mobile versions in the source code:
{for win,linux,android,maemo}die {key Eingabetaste}{/for}{for mac}{key Return}{/for}

At the time I made this change all works well, but now {key Eingabetaste} is always shown - regardless what OS I'm choosing.
We've had some recent showfor changes in bug 638127, which affects the behavior of desktop VS mobile content. Does that clear things up?
Keywords: regression
Specifically, this was an intentional change in bug 638127, not a regression.

Maybe Kadir or Michael can help reword or work around this?

James, thanks. We've corrected it and now it's in sync with the English version again.
