Another one for the unification and content consistency story.

I noticed this in: 

Advanced > Plugins > Tap to play
"Add more search providers" > ...and then tapping the [] icon."
Accessibility > Magnify small areas > "tapping near them"

Not sure if there's anywhere else...
To fix this bug, you'll need to make a change to and android_strings.dtd. Here's a good example of a similar patch:

I replaced the occurrences of tap to touch. Is this the appropriate way to solve the issue?

Attached patch bug1255206.patchSplinter Review
I made the required changes, please verify. I tried looking for other occurences of "tap", but I could not find anything relevant that would need to be changed.

I pasted the output of a simple 'grep' command which I used to search for mentions of "tap" in

If there are any other occurences that I might have overlooked, please let me know.
