Firefox 17 will not be a silent update and whill have a /whatsnew/ page displayed to promote the SocialAPI/Facebook messages feature integrated in the browser.

We don't have the page created yet but it will be very similar to the current whatsnew page. We will also have promotional messages on the about:home page for this feature, those strings are in snippets.lang.

As the page is not created yet, we don't have it on a staging server, but it will be at this address at some point:

The Creative team sent me the strings needed and I updated the files in your svn repo (whatsnew.lang and snippets.lang).

If you never translated that file, that's about 30 strings, otherwise it's just a dozen strings.



If you have already translated your files since you saw them on your webdashboard (, please wait for the page to be set up by the webdev team to make sure we have all the strings working and that the page displays correctly for your locale.

As usual, please send your translation to the svn repository for your locale ( or attach your updated file to this bug and I will put them on the server for you.

Done in rev 110674.

Note: I can't verify the result on because it is redirecting me to instead.
