I used to see an experiment, but now it's missing?

We've recently shipped localization for Test Pilot and decided to restrict experiments from certain locales to ensure a smooth roll out. We didn't uninstall any experiments, but if your default language is German, some experiments may have been hidden from Test Pilot. Experiments you've previously installed are still accessible through about:addons and can be uninstalled from there. It's also possible that the experiment you're looking for has already graduated. You can see graduated experiments by clicking on the View Past Experiments button on Test Pilot.

Where can I file a bug?

Test Pilot bugs can be filed on the Test Pilot GitHub repo. link

You will find a link to report bugs for individual experiments on the experiment's detail page on Test Pilot for the most up to date link.
