Description

8 months ago
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 [1]) 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.
