If I summon the search bar at the lower edge of my Estonian language firefox, the righternmost item, which in the english version porbably is "case sensitive" is translated to "tõstutundlik" which is a nonsensical word in estonian. A lot better translation would be "suur- ja väiketähe tundlik" or something similar. "tõstutundlik" may be understood by a person who is a computer and philology nerd at the same time but surely not by the average internet user.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.press command + F (control + F in windows)
2.observe
Actual Results:  
the translation flaw appeared

Expected Results:  
display a better translation
