Resolution: --- → DUPLICATE
Gaia Triage : reopening this bug.  It's not a full dup.  B2G still is stated, the File Menu has been removed.  Branding issue, so marking +.

Please fix the branding issue portion (Firefox OS)

Cc'ing Axel because this might change with bug 796051.

We're pulling in the brand strings from brand.dtd:

Will an officially branded build be built with "Firefox OS" as the brandname? If so, this should be resolved by that.

Moving this outside of the Gaia component because these error messages are handled by Gecko.

This will be fixed by bug 812830 which is about setting up the multilocale Gecko repacks with the right branding.

Who should own this?
Flags: needinfo?(l10n)
Not sure who's owning this, we'll need a patch that's probably consistent with bug 811328 which changed branding within gaia itself. Stas might have some follow ups to that still, though, in particular on localizable vs non-localizable branding parts.

Note, we don't have infrastructure/code to modify branding within for any of our products right now.

Vivien was talking about having a constant for the product name earlier in the week, would this come under that work Vivien?

Not really. This one is Gecko part and the variables in Gaia can not affect Gecko.

Is there no-one on this bug that knows how to fix this? :(

Axel: Can you at least point us in the direction for where a fix would live?
It's not clear what the fix is, really. There are so many branding variants flying around, but they're not really crisp on how bad we can go for options that don't involve calling the browser app Firefox.

Next step is to make both the official and the non-official branding be called Mozilla Firefox in b2g/branding, IMHO. Then we'll be up-to-par with the Firefox-branded appstrings that we use.
Attached patch patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Simple patch to change the official string to "Firefox OS" instead of B2G. With that and --enable-official-branding in my mozconfig, I get the correct error pages.

This shows that we can hardly avoid calling the thing Firefox, as half the string there is from appstrings. I suggest we just be consistent and use "Firefox" here as well.

Also, we're branding the browser here, not the phone. thus I suggest to use "Firefox" instead of "Firefox OS"
Axel's comment makes good sense. This is the browser. Unless anyone strongly objects, let's go with Firefox.

Fabrice - Can you wrap this one up?

Review of attachment 687278 [details] [diff] [review]:

I think we should add the logoTrademark for unofficial as we're using Firefox, r=me with that.

Can you add the logoTrademark here, too?
