    This article, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-osx/ was just approved with the title "Thunderbird support has ended for Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8". The lithium link posted in the bug report, https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Install-Migrate-and-Update/Thunderbird-support-has-ended-for-Mac-OS-versions-10-6-10-7-and/ta-p/1386590 should redirect to this article (like https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Install-Migrate-and-Update/Your-hardware-is-no-longer-supported-by-Thunderbird/ta-p/1386599 does and other Lithium SUMO links do) but it doesn't. Clearing the cache doesn't help. Maybe it takes awhile?

    See Bug 1357950 - Handle Links To Lithium Content on Kitsune ... which links to https://github.com/mozilla/kitsune/pull/2881/files ( # 5a. Try to find a Document with the same title, redirect if successful).

    We may have to change the article title to "Thunderbird support has ended for Mac OS versions 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8" to match the Lithium article title (we can probably keep the same slug).

    1) I’m not sure why Lithium links should still redirect to Kitsune links/slugs (unless for in-product links, and I don’t think this one is) - aren’t they dead or no longer used anyway? If needed, I’m sure some admin can fix this if they can still access them, even if it would be needed temporary, though e.g. Google already comes up with the Kitsune slug/link. (...) I asked on IRC and was told it is not really needed.

    2) I intentionally changed the title to remove versions so it meets the Firefox support has ended for Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8 Firefox article name, along with a few nits (i.e. not everything on Lithium versions may have been perfect, and FF articles may have "higher standards", at least in my opinion.) Not that I don’t see a point of not adding it, but only if that would happen for the FF article too. Note that the FF article was also renamed from Firefox support has ended for OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8 to this in August 2016 in order to include "Mac OS" - see its discussion.)

    OK, lets leave it as-is and see if it comes up as an issue in the bug report.
