Description

6 years ago
In https://github.com/mozilla/bedrock/pull/268, Craig asks some questions about this page.

Is this page still useful? John, Chris?
If it is not, we should remove it. Where should we redirect if we close it?

If the page is still useful, we need to fix it.
Craig says: "The responsive layout is broken in smaller windows, and the needle goes screwy in Nightly but not in Fx13"
There is also bug 737901.

Thanks Anthony. As this is a Firefox marketing page, I'm copying Laura as well. LoFo, what do you think? (see comment #0 for details)

My inclination would be to keep it, but Laura will have a better sense of how this page is or isn't being used.

Yes - let's fix this. Why?

1. We're thinking of relaunching this page for the Q4 holiday season (think: "here's how to get Firefox on your new device")

2. Landing pages like this are helpful to have - when people search for long-tail "Firefox for tablets" or the like we want to be first in the search results, and pages like this help us do that (not sure what terms this page ranks for, using that as an example)

3. This is a great page with a nice template. Let's make sure it's responsive. 

That said, there is other content changes this page may need that I'll include as part of any holiday changes we make in Q4.
We can fix the code easily enough but we'll need updated images with new fennec screenshots. 

My only other concern is that we don't currently support tablets since the fennec relaunch, but we should by the next release and we'll certainly have the page fixed by then. Until then the page is misleading in addition to being broken.

I added this to the future milestone so that it shows up on our backlog and we can get it scheduled for a future sprint.

Laura: What is an estimate on when you would need this live?

I'd like to close this bug and address the questions raised here as part of the firefox family redesign we're undertaking in March-Q2.

Laura - any thoughts?

Rich landing pages that answer common consumer questions (like "how can I add Firefox to all my devices?") are helpful to have, but if we have a better "family" landing page that does this job better than I'm fine to use that, and retire this.

Marking as "resolved - incomplete".  We will discuss incorporating this content into the Fx Family page schema in March (will take SEO impact into consideration).
