Description

7 years ago
The mobile team would like to re-name the "Fennec Native" component to "Firefox for Android" to make it clearer and easier to find for bug reporters and other contributors.

This change was discussed on IRC and in the public newsgroup below, and we have agreement on this from module owner Mark Finkle and the rest of the mobile contributors:

Patch to change Fennec product name (v1)

Alot of this is hard coded in the BMO code so attaching a patch that makes the necessary changes. Once it is committed, it will go live with our next code update, likely next week. Once the code is live, I will make the product name change in the database using the admin UI.

I thought we were going for "Firefox" and not using "Fennec".

Yes, please use "Firefox for Android."  Fennec is an old internal code name that (confusingly) refers to a few different products.  "Firefox for Android" is the actual product name.

Yeah my fault. I blame it on the record heat we are having here in the South East ;) Will post new patch shortly.

Patch to change Fennec product name (v3)

Jumped the gun again. This patch uses the Firefox icon instead of the old Fennec icon and also fixes the product name (caption) displayed in the guided bug entry form.

Matt: I will also need a revised product description for the change before we go live with out next code push. Currently the old description is...

"Fennec is the code name of the effort to build a mobile version of Firefox (more info)"

Thanks

If we change this product name, please file a followup on Socorro to change the link in "File a bug" for FennecAndroid crashes to go to the new product instead of "Fennec Native".
