Sponsored tiles: don't expose explanation URL as a localizable string
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #974745 +++ http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/diff/f3c44cfc3900/browser/locales/en-US/chrome/browser/newTab.dtd SUMO URL is currently exposed as a localizable item: this is not needed. SUMO will take care of redirecting users to the correct localization, if available, no point in having this link as a string in the .dtd file. Also, with the current status, we would need a new string every time we need to update this URL, and it wouldn't be possible on Aurora or Beta.

Which support URL i should be using to access the explanation page on SUMO? The common pattern in to point to a SUMO page within a browser is to use a short cut as, for example, in this link: https://support.mozilla.org/1/firefox/31.0a1/Darwin/en-US/social-api, Which gets redirected to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-social-features-your-browser?redirectlocale=en-US&as=u&redirectslug=firefox-services-add-social-features-your-browser&utm_source=inproduct I currently use "how-do-sponsored-tiles-work" string to form this SUMO url: https://support.mozilla.org/1/firefox/31.0a1/Darwin/en-US/how-do-sponsored-tiles-work And I get "Page-not-found". So, which string I should be using instead of "how-do-sponsored-tiles-work" to get a proper SUMO page?
https://support.mozilla.org/kb/how-do-sponsored-tiles-work is already the URL for the localized page.
What I'm saying is that localizers won't need to change it, so no point in exposing it in the .properties file, just hard-code it. To give you an example (this page about Sponsored tiles doesn't seem to be localized yet). If I visit this URL https://support.mozilla.org/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-windows I get automatically redirected to https://support.mozilla.org/it/kb/Installare%20Firefox%20su%20Windows because I'm using a browser set to Italian and the localized page is available.
