User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; sv-SE; rv:1.9.1pre) Gecko/20090601 Shiretoko/3.5pre
Build Identifier: 

In Swedish, the "Add to Firefox" button says "Lägg till Firefox", this translates to "Add Firefox" ("Add" is two words in Swedish). The correct translation would be "Lägg till i Firefox".

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
It says "Lägg till Firefox".

Expected Results:  
It should say "Lägg till i Firefox".

If confirmation to check if the information above is "valid" is needed, I suggest taking a look at the built in addon-installer, where it says "Lägg till i Firefox".

As far as I can tell, both are acceptable (although neither is very good). We just had a brainstorming session but failed to come up with any better so I'll accept the consistency argument and use "Lägg till i". 

Fixed in revision 27989.

You had a good solution for it there for a while, "Hämta hem" or something similar, but now it's gone again?

"Hämta hem nu" is used for other applications when the extension is downloaded instead of installed. I consider it non-appropriate for the installation case.

(I'm still not content with neitheer "Lägg till" nor "Lägg till i", but so far, those are the only ones we've been able to think of that I feel has the right tone.)

How about "Installera"? As that is exactly what you do. You "Install" the extension.

Has the wrong tone, feels more technical and less friendly. If I remember correctly, the button used to say "Install" (or something similar) and we used installera, but I wouldn't use it for "Add to Firefox".

How about just "Lägg till"?

I'm not sure - it's short and friendly, but it's also somewhat unclear, add to what? Some might think it'd add the extension to one of their collections.

Also, validators would complain (and rightly so), as it's a bit much for a translation to ignore so much.
