Description

4 years ago
We want to ship Firefox Mobile with a good list of search engines for Estonian.

We're going to work towards this in three phases. First, the localization team and the l10n drivers will look at the market for the language and come up with a good set of search providers. Sanders, we'll need your input on this, the guidelines for making recommendations are on <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Productization_guide>.

For en-US, we currently use this set, to which we can fall back in the case of lacking localized alternatives:

> Google (mobile version), Yahoo, Bing, Amazon, Twitter, Wikipedia (slightly different to desktop, 32x32 icon)

We may also want to go with just a subset of the en-US engines, if that's more appropriate for the local market.

Once we decide to use a particular search engine (and we test it on a mobile device), l10n drivers will contact the owner and ask for permission, and for specifics like proper search flags. Sanders, we'll likely need your help to at least get the contact information.

For search engines that we already ship with on desktop and that you would like to include in mobile as well, the permission is not needed. Consider using a mobile version of the engine if one is available. Also, please make yourself familiar with instructions regarding the <Description/> element at <https://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:Integrated_Search_Instructions>. For mobile, we'll want 64x64 size images, too.

Once we have a specification on what the search engines for Estonian should look like, flod (Francesco Lodolo) and the localization team will work on an implementation on that. flod will create and attach patches for the desired changes and get them reviewed. After a successful review, flod will land them. Sanders, if you're interested, you could create the patches, too. You'd ask flod for review on those before landing.

Please don't commit any modifications in browser/searchplugins to the hg repository without a patch reviewed by flod, Stas, Axel or someone else appointed by the l10n drivers. The data here is sensitive to users and our search partners, thus the extra care here.

The Estonian team and flod will be driving this bug to completion.

I'd propose this list:
* Google (mobile version)
* Twitter
* Wikipedia (et if possible)
* Amazon (not quite sure about that tho')
OS: Mac OS X → Android
Hardware: x86 → All

> * Wikipedia (et if possible)
Sure, no problem about that (I see that it's already used on desktop too).

> * Amazon (not quite sure about that tho')
US version? Is there any other e-commerce website popular for your locale? 
I see you're using osta.ee on Desktop (looks like an e-commerce website).

UK is in EU, I think it would fit better.

It's not that popular. UK's Ebay is more popular but not sure if we should add it or not.
I see eBay in the list of Desktop's searchplugins too, but that the US version.

So:
* Google
* Twitter
* Wikipedia-et
* Amazon.co.uk

Is that correct?

Yes.

Set-up mobile searchplugins

Replace amazon.com with amazon.co.uk (using the same parameters currently used in other locales, i.e. "da" and "en-GB"), replace wikipedia with wikipedia-et.

@Sander
Can you mark this bug as verified as soon as you can test a build with Amazon and Wikipedia?

As soon as I get something to test with :)
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
Please change the status only after you managed to test a build ;-)

Unfortunately we're still missing the single locale builds, so we need to wait for the inclusion in the multi-locale build.

Oh, sorry! I was searching where I can verify it and probably forgot to change it back before I submitted my comment :)
