    I'm thinking the link is for https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/... instead of https://support.mozilla.org/kb/...

    So i would suggest making a new short link for https://support.mozilla.org/kb/how-does-phishing-and-malware-protection-work

    I think that is the way to make it work for locales and not have the localizers make new short links.

    There are no current guidelines for manually creating short links, now that they're being automatically added to KB articles. See this discussion thread for more information:

    I would ask Joni about this, or post a comment to the l10n forum I mentioned before,
