Description Tim Taubert [:ttaubert] 2012-01-09 07:07:44 PST
We're gonna land this feature on trunk but pref'ed off. This bug has all the dependencies and the patch needed to enable it for Nightly users.

This patch enables the New Tab Page on Nightly, only. Keeps it disabled on Official, Unofficial and Aurora.

Clearing unresolved dependencies. We're not going to block on this to get early feedback on the New Tab Page.

Why does this patch mess with browser/branding/{aurora,official,unofficial}/pref/firefox-branding.js? Can't browser/branding/nightly/pref/firefox-branding.js override browser/app/profile/firefox.js?
Comment 7 Tim Taubert [:ttaubert] 2012-01-31 03:31:26 PST
Backed out:

Going to upload a new patch for tomorrow which just flips the pref for everyone and we're ready to back it out if it's not ready for Aurora in six weeks.

[Approval Request Comment]
Regression caused by (bug #): New feature, no regression.
User impact if declined: No New Tab Page :(
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): 1-2 weeks baking time on Nightly.
String changes made by this patch: None.

We want to collect user feedback from more users. The New Tab Page should be enabled for Aurora 12, but will be disabled for Beta in ~4 weeks.
Comment 12 Chris Lee [:clee] 2012-02-09 15:03:34 PST
The approval from drivers is to pref this on for 1 wk starting today and we'll plan to pref this back off by next Thurs, 2/16.  

Can you file a separate bug to pref this back off next week?  Thanks!
