If the installation of a search engine from a local OpenSearch xml file (via the Browser Console, as described in bug 1236498 comment 7, or an add-on ) fails due, by example, to having a malformed xml file, then the next dialog is shown by Firefox: > -- Download Error -- > Nightly could not download the search plugin from: > file:///home/.../my-badformed-file.xml > [OK] I find the twice mention of "download" misleading in this case; maybe replacing "download" with "install" is enough good for all the cases, not only for failed installs from websites. : https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/search-engines-export-import/
I would like to help on this issue. Can you tell me which file(s) to look at for fixing this issue?
Its just been pointed out to me that I'm fixing this in the patch on bug 1218324 already.
Bug 1218324 has fixed this and has just landed in nightly.
