Right now, for the default search providers, the descriptions in the add-ons manager are:

Google Search
Yahoo Search
Amazon.com Search
Realtime Twitter Search
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

which aren't very descriptive of what these things which we're portraying as add-ons actually _add_ to the browser.

I'd suggest that we change them to:

Search button for Google
Search button for Yahoo
Search button for Amazon.com
Search button for Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Search button for Twitter

Future search providers that users add will just use the opensearch plugins' own description fields, but, by the point a user has added one, we should be over the hump of them understanding what's going on.
I'm not a fan of "Search button ..."
and we already show "Search" on the right side of the item.

I really think we should not change these strings

>-<Description>Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia</Description>
>+<Description>Integrated Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Search</Description>

Are you sure you want to keep the ", the free encyclopedia " part?

I causes me great pain to r+ this
