Description

Background

Currently, when a user is reporting a known issue, we notify them after they have submitted their issue. Over 50% of the issue reports we receive are known issues.

Checking for a known issue and notifying the user before they fill out the issue report will hopefully help users resolve their issues and reduce the number of issue reports we receive.

When the user selects their issue type from the first screen, we will check to see if the issue they want to report is already a known issue (using existing logic that displays the known issue link at the end of the issue reporting process). We will provide a link to give the user more information about their issue, but still allow them to submit an issue report if they don't feel the link is helpful or related to their issue.

The style should be the same as the current Firefox Issue Reporter, since we are just adding a screen to after the issue type selection, the font etc should match the rest of the Issue Reporter.

What to change

Functional Requirements

After a user selects their issue type in the Issue Reporter, it should check to see if the user is submitting an already known issue. This process currently happens at the end of the issue reporting process. If it is found to be a known issue already, the Known Issue screen should display at the beginning of the issue reporting process. Link(s) will display for all of the known issues that match the site the user wants to report an issue on.

The known issues list can be seen under https://hg.adblockplus.org/subscriptionlist/file/tip/knownIssues. The issue reporter should download it as part of its information gathering process. The browser's usual caching applies so that we don't get too many requests here (the server should indicate that this file has to be cached for a day). We should make sure it can be downloaded fromhttps://downloads.adblockplus.org/reports/knownIssues.
