Updating the knowledge base for Firefox 3.6 – List the changes in Firefox

Firefox 3.6 is the next significant Firefox milestone release, and the first beta release is coming soon. We need to start thinking about what updates we need to make to the knowledge base, and plan how to deploy those updates.

The plan itself is not set yet. First, we would like to gather a list of changes from 3.5 to 3.6 that affect user support. Once we have a good idea of what has changed in Firefox, we can:

  1. Assess what changes need to be made to the knowledge base.
  2. Establish which changes can be done using a script that will automatically update all articles.
  3. Draft an update plan.

I’ve started a wiki page on wiki.mozilla.org to gather a list of changes in Firefox 3.6. If you know of any changes not on the list that affect user support, please add them to the page with a link to relevant information (bug number or blog post).

If you have any questions, just ask in the Contributors forum thread. Thank you!

    Almost forgot!
    Firefox 3.6 leaves the title tooltip on hover up until you move the mouse away, now I can read it all in http://xkcd.com/675/ without it disappearing

    I don’t think there are any articles which will need to be edited because of that change, but thanks anyway!
