Right now it's really difficult to get back to /mobile to learn more from the mobile add-ons page. Although most visitors on the mobile add-ons page probably already downloaded Firefox for Android,  we should still have a download button for the visitors who end up here from the desktop add-ons/customize pages or search.  

I suggest putting it under the "Most Popular" list, using the same button as http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/mobile/features/.  

Dan - what other stakeholders should be added to this bug for this page? Is there a specific webdev person for add-ons sites?

Hey Jaclyn, want to make sure I follow you correctly here. Are you talking about desktop users who land on this mobile add-ons page:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/mobile/

If so, rather than sending them back to the features page, I'd feature a download button (same as on mozilla.org/mobile) and a hyperlink for additional info. Would recommend inserting this above the Featured Extensions box:

BUTTON: Get Firefox for Android
BUTTON SUBTEXT: Free from the Android market
MORE INFO: Find out more about Firefox for mobile <www.mozilla.org/mobile/features>

Wil Clouser should be able to help here.

Hey Dan,

Yes, I'm referring to desktop users who land on the mobile add-ons page.  When I suggested using the same button as on http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/mobile/features/, I was referring to the mobile download button that we have on that page - not directing visitors to the /features page. 

Hey Wil - Thoughts? Can you provide insight on where we should place this download button?  Would a button have to be added to the desktop add-ons page to keep it consistent?
It looks like there is space in the right hand column.  I don't think it should be above the featured extensions box - that's the most valuable spot on the page and downloading mobile firefox is not the primary focus of the page.

I'm not sure I would agree with that. If desktop users end on the mobile add-on page, I think it's likely that they don't have Firefox for mobile, and it's a priority.

That said, I think right hand column would work well here anyway - so Jaclyn, if you agree, lets go ahead with that change.

+1 to the right hand column. Let's do this! Thanks!
