#237 Review Firefox Bookmarks For Update
Closed: Fixed 5 years ago Opened 5 years ago by mailga.


As usual the Task related to the firefox bookmarks is in charge to the marketing team.

background analysis

With a installed copy of the new release (nightly is good as well), it needs the bookmarks verified by clicking on their links.

If any of them doesn't work, please open a thread in the mktg ML so we can fix them. In the last release, Paul Frields @pfrields was involved in its packaging, so he's the person to reach for any question.

implementation recommendation

The due dates, as mentioned in the mktg task, are:

  • Review Firefox Bookmarks For Update: from Tue 2016-08-30 to Tue 2016-09-06
  • Update and Package Firefox Bookmarks: from Tue 2016-09-06 to Thu 2016-09-08
  • Tag Updated Bookmarks Package for Fedora 25: from Thu 2016-09-08 to Thu 2016-09-08

Discussed in 2016-09-06 meeting.

@x3mboy is working on closing up loops on this one.

I don't find any bookmark related to the Fedora Project beyond the start page:


I don't know if i'm missing a package or something.

This was tested in a fresh installation of Fedora 25 Alpha (i686).

I test the package fedora-bookmarks-24-1.fc25.noarch

The following bookmarks are installed:

The only issue for now are:

  1. The package is not installed by default in a fresh installaton

  2. When the package is installed, you still need to import the bookmarks with the import option/tool of firefox.

This issue was reviewed and solved. It can be closed.

@x3mboy Thanks for the update! Ticket closed as "fixed".

I also added you to the Marketing Pagure group, so hopefully you will be able to close tickets in the future. :smile:
