Not sure if this is the right Component, please adjust as necessary.

The Aurora home page thanks the user for using "Firefox" when it should thank the user for using "Aurora".

hi laura, 

can we update the default snippet?
would be more than happy to help in figuring out what that default snippet should be. 

Maybe it can be around: Thank you for choosing Firefox Aurora. Now you can always get the latest features first. Find out more about Firefox Aurora and how you can help the Future of Firefox! [Link to Firefox Aurora Page] 

also added matej for additional recommendations.

I think there are two ways to approach this:

1) We can leave it as is. We're thanking the person for choosing Firefox, and Aurora is still a component of that. Choosing, I think, is different than using, and as a broader message about the values Firefox stands for, I think it still works.

2) Adapt it as Grace suggests. Here, however, I'd tweak the copy a bit. They've already downloaded Aurora, so I don't think we need to "sell" them anymore by telling them they'll be getting the latest features first. I would simplify it like so:

Thank you for choosing Firefox Aurora. Learn more about Aurora and how you can help shape the future of Firefox!

I think either is fine, just wanted to share both as options.

Default snippets are not supposed to show so this bug is symptomatic of a larger problem we should use this bug to address. 

@Grace & @Matej - default snippets can be changed but it does take engineering efforts as it's a change within the actual product. @Grace - feel free to open a separate bug for that. 

@Gen - Do you know what locale your browser was set to? What snippets do you see now?
