    This "How to" article was approved over a year ago but was never marked ready to localize. Should it be?

    Probably forgotten to mark ready to localize. :)

    IMO it is useful to mark the article ready to localize.

    What’s "" ? Nothing (empty pref value), or nothing in quotes (and without a trailing period? ;-) )

    Also, please note - the rather long summary that may exceed the max length for many locales - the markup error (italic?) for "Please Rate Firefox" (also note the capital R) - the fact that Input is about to get replaced (add expiry date?)

    The instructions to set browser.selfsupport.url to "" ...looks to be copied from the Disabling Heartbeat section of https://wiki.mozilla.org/Advocacy/heartbeat (the previous Learn more link, according to Bug 1161572 - Heartbeats "learn more" link should point to a support article). I don't know if it's meant to be blank or "".

    I shortened the summary and fixed the italics for "Please Rate Firefox" (making it a capital R). You'll have to ask Joni or someone else about setting the value to "" (blank string? use quotes?) and about adding an expiry date.

    Thanks.

    With regard to the quotes: I think it’s safe to think the quotes are not needed, since it’s very unusual to have them used as a variable itself, and they are not included for the default value either. Looking at several documents on the net (like the Wiki page in particular), this is probably a copy/paste issue and kind of causes slightly wrong information (like in this German article, even though I think including them will also cause the opt-out to work without problems.) Jscher also advised to use blank value in support questions like this and this one. To verify, I've contacted one of the people at the Wiki page over IRC (Matt) but had no reply yet.

    All together, how about changing the line to this one below?

    #Find the preference {pref browser.selfsupport.url} and set its value to "" (leave it blank).

    Or better.

    I have a revision pending to change the line to the above. I'll let you or another reviewer approve it.

    Chris Ilias made a new revision to change the instructions to:

    #Find the preference {pref browser.selfsupport.url} and double-click on it. #Delete the value (leave it blank), and click {button OK}.
