As discussed in bug 725407, the Telemetry opt-in notification message is not consistent with the wording that is being used in the opt-out notification message and about pages. Specifically, telemetryPrompt = Will you help improve %1$S by sending anonymous information about performance, hardware characteristics, feature usage, and browser customizations to %2$S? telemetryOptOutPrompt = %1$S sends information about performance, hardware, usage and customizations back to %2$S to help improve %3$S. There are two key differences: 1. opt-in "performance, hardware characteristics, feature usage, and browser customizations" opt-out "performance, hardware, usage and customizations" 2. The opt-in message uses the word "anonymous". We can likely update 1 without reprompting. Dropping the word anonymous may require a reprompt. I think we need to question the value of any change that requires us to reprompt our Telemetry opt-in population and risk reducing this already small group.
Update #1 is fine and doesn't need a reprompt. We should not be using the word "anonymous". If we're currently using it, we should change that and reprompt.
We should not re-prompt unless we have a change of policy. It's not worth pissing off millions of users over language imperfections.
(In reply to Taras Glek (:taras) from comment #2) > We should not re-prompt unless we have a change of policy. It's not worth > pissing off millions of users over language imperfections. Just to be clear. Personally I'm ok with changing the string and reprompting users who haven't opted for yes/no(ie to boost telemetry rates). I'm not ok with reprompting users who actively made a choice at this frequency.
Nah, I don't think we need to reprompt. I feel precisely as Taras feels in comment 3.
Theo - Can you handle the update in this bug?
Just to state it explicitly, the message will be updated as follows: telemetryPrompt = Will you help improve %1$S by sending information about performance, hardware, usage, and customizations to %2$S?
Screenshot in coming. (If needed)

Looks good...except of course that we won't show this notification on Nightly. :)
