Support

  • Discussion in mozilla.support.planning about re-evaluating in-product help for Firefox 3.1

    • Evaulating: How big should it be? Can we better organize the content in product help? What content should be covered in in-product help?

    • Current issue: Do we consider any page in in-product help to be mandatory for localization?
    • Dependent on Firefox code: Are there any other good places for help-topic links? Is it too late to even think about that?
