Description

7 years ago
In an effort to clean up the whatsnew/firstrun pages that have been left around behind the beta/RC releases of Firefox (mostly 4.0 betas), we're going to create a fall-back page that we can redirect any out-of-date firstrun/whatsnew pages for Beta or RC builds of Firefox.

This will be similar to the out-of-date page we redirect people to for final releases: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/out-of-date/

Rather than a download button for the final release, this page will point people to the /firefox/channel/ page where they can get a more recent beta or Aurora build.

Perhaps it should also offer a download of the current final release?

Will need Matej's help for the text.

lforrest/lmesa, are we ok reusing the general layout/design from the existing /firefox/out-of-date/ page?

Good idea. I think the main CTA should direct people to the channels page rather than the current final release...our general thinking is that we want to grow these new channels, so past beta users should become future beta users, if that makes sense.

Also, would you mind filing a separate copy bug for Matej? https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Marketing (component: copy)
