Yahoo! has notified Mozilla that they have closed their Korea operations - it is necessary to remove the Yahoo! icon from the drop-down in Korea only.

Did they request removal, given their relation with Korea? Also, given our relations with Yahoo, can they do that?
Regular search still works on http://kr.search.yahoo.com/search, so I guess this isn't firedrill-critical?

Although, suggestions on http://kr.ff.search.yahoo.com/ already hit a DNS error.

Also, is replacing kr.search.yahoo.com with the global yahoo.com an option for us?

I guess kr.search.yahoo.com is operated by Yahoo! Korea and some of properties ex: image search are bing and daum.net http://kr.image.search.yahoo.com/search/images?&p=firefox&fr2=piv-omg&fr=sfp

Please check out Yahoo! HQ for this because it was global contract and let me know how to do.
I found a public reference: http://techcrunch.com/2012/10/19/yahoo-to-pull-out-of-korean-search-by-the-end-of-the-year-its-first-asian-market-exit/. Joanne gave me the same timeline, and we're freed of our contractual obligations here.

Given the timeline, it'd be great if we could get yahoo removed in 18, which we release in the first week of January.

I don't think it's making sense to replace the Korean Yahoo with en-US, given this information.

Does that make sense to you, Channy?

We'd also need to adjust region.properties. I suggest to not add a order.2 as a replacement for yahoo at this point.

You mean to omit order.2 in region.properties?

For both browser and mail, I'd drop yahoo completely, that is, not replace yahoo-kr with yahoo. I'm not sure that their results will continue to matter for Korean, independent of the site localization.

Is there no problem for contract with Yahoo?

Joanne is the person that would tell us if there would be problems. Now that she filed the bug as "remove yahoo", that's what our take is from a partnership point-of-view.
