First issue - messages that need to be in plural-form: <em>%s</em> Weekly Downloads <em>%s</em> Total Downloads <em>%s</em> Active Daily Users %s days (msgid "editors_x_days") %s hours (msgid "editors_x_hours") %s minutes (msgid "editors_x_minutes") Second issue - plural messages that need to be fixed: That applies on the newly added "Addon Types" messages. See bug 476833 and bug 476836 for more details.
Can you explain the second issue in the context of AMO strings?
(In reply to comment #1) > Can you explain the second issue in the context of AMO strings? When the plural message doesn't contain a reference to the numeric variable (e.g. '%s' or '%1$s'), that means that the number will be externally added to the message. But if '%s' (or its equivalent) is included within the message, the localizer has control on it, either keep it or delete it. That is the case of Arabic language for numbers 0, 1 and 2, because if the number appears with the message, it will become something like "2 two-Extensions", since the nouns in Arabic implicitly express their quantities if it is for 0, 1 or 2 items. As conclusion, messages like: (msgstr "Extension" & msgstr "Extensions") should be replaced by something like: (msgstr "%s Extension" & msgstr "%s Extensions"). That rule should be applied everywhere whatever was the component. Thanks
Ah, I see. Are we concatenating a number to that string anywhere? I think it's just used independently. For example, the "Extensions" link in the menu (in which case, storing it as a plural form may be wrong...)
Well, I assumed these Add-on Types are displayed with numbers, so that's why they are in plural-form. If it's not the case, the second issue is dissolved, and plural-form is not needed for these messages.

However, I've fixed in in SVN and emailed the dev-l10n-web list so we should be good. #1 is still a valid complaint.
(In reply to comment #0) > First issue - messages that need to be in plural-form: Another example is the link to the reviews page from the Reviews section of the add-on details page which reads “See all 1 reviews of this add-on.” See e.g. https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1594#reviews This applies both to AMO 5.0.7 and preview.addons.mozilla.org.
