 > Here are a few notes for the UX Team / Antonela:

 > * The onboarding requires a window that is at least 960 pixels wide;
 otherwise, it is not shown. Hopefully most of our users have a display
 that is wide enough.

 Is this a Firefox's media query break up? What happens with smaller
 screens? We could think in a responsive version for next iteration :)

 > * We need a "watermark" icon (64x64 PNG). This is shown on about:tor
 after the user has completed all of the onboarding tasks. For now, Kathy
 and I put in a grayscale version of the Tor Browser globe icon (we know
 that a new browser icon is coming, so we didn't spend much time on this).
 The image that Firefox uses is here: https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-

 Great, perfect. Thanks.

 > * Firefox has a small icon for each of the onboarding tasks, shown to
 the left of the task name (see a screenshot here) https://techdows.com/wp-
 content/uploads/2017/06/Firefox-Photon-onboarding-tour-min.png). Your
 design has no icons, so we omitted them (but they could be added).

 Yes, we can think about to include them or not on the next iteration.

 > * The Firefox onboarding code adds a checkmark to the left of the
 completed task's titles. Kathy and I made a PNG that is 15x15 pixels from
 Mozilla's image: https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-


 > * We disabled onboarding notifications since we do not have a
 specification for the text (if enabled, these would appear at the bottom
 of the about:tor window to prompt users to look at onboarding tasks). Do
 we want notifications in a future version of this feature? We would need a
 notification title and message for each of the onboarding tasks. The
 English strings used by Firefox ESR60 are in the following file (search
 for `onboarding.notification.onboarding-tour`): https://dxr.mozilla.org
 US/onboarding.properties There is also a button for each notification but
 in all cases Firefox ESR60 uses "Learn More" as the label (from
 `onboarding.button.learnMore` in that same properties file).

 We might do it. I'll keep it in mind for the next iteration.
