Actual results: Got an error alert "Please correct the following errors: 1.full_name" The input id and field name is 'full_name' in HTML source. Expected results: Showing the label what is shown on screen, is more meaningful. On screen it reads 'Full Name'. Text showing as 'below will be helpful. Please correct the following errors: 1. Enter the Full Name.
The appropriate error message is specified in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=797790#c6: 1. Change the error message string to: "Please complete the following field" (if there are multiple error messages, let's say "fields") The current error message string says: "The following fields are required (optin is the checkbox in the last panel):" 2. Change the wording when a required field is missing: * "Full Name" [currently says 'full_name']

There's a 4th error condition: Full name is blank. Bug for that one: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=766702
After spending some time evaluating this bug, and getting sign-off from Sancus, it seems that the form needs to be re-worked a bit in order to get the correct values for the error messages.

:sancus, :giorgos, would one of you be up for modifying the form so its error messages do not print slugs? Spec in comment 2, clarification in comment 3, addendum in comment 4.
I vote for displaying a generic error message like "Please correct the following errors" and we display errors bellow each field with error. We can also highlight the field. This display fits better the new design since the page is now pretty long and the user should scroll top-down to find the missing fields. In any case, yes we can fix the error messages.
As part of bug 895459 we created a generic error message at the top of the form and inline with the fields causing the error. It's live in dev: https://mozillians-dev.allizom.org/en-US/user/edit/
