User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; rv:2.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla\Firefox\4.0 The 'About Firefox' window states at the end, 'Sound interesting? Get involved'. The word, 'sound' should be replaced with 'sounds' which is grammatically appropriate here. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.In Firefox 4, click on the orange Firefox button on the top left. 2.Select 'Help'. 3.Select 'About Firefox'. Actual Results: Text describing the Firefox community activities is presented in a paragraph. The line following it states 'Sound Interesting? Get Involved'. Expected Results: The line following the descriptive paragraph should state 'Sounds interesting?' Grammatically, since we are referring to a single entity, Firefox, the word used should be 'sounds' instead of 'sound'.
I believe that it says "Sound interesting?" because it is implying "Does that sound interesting?" In that case, it would be grammatically correct.
Somehow, the usage does not feel right to us. We could have a head count of people form the US and the UK on their take on this. After all, this is a heavily used dialog box!
