Right now, when a page is bookmarked, we change the bookmark icon to a filled-in star and change the label to "Remove" so that you can unbookmark. On ICS, though, we don't do icons in the menu, and we have a checked checkbox in the row (because the page is bookmarked, meaning that we get this nonsensical thing:

Remove   [x]

with no context.

Instead, it should read as

Bookmark    [x]

and tapping should uncheck (unbookmark).

Would it be out of the question to use "Bookmark" all the time (ICS and other phones)? I worry that "Remove" is too vague.

Or maybe it could change between "Bookmark [ ]" and "Bookmarked [x]" -- but I don't know how localizable that is.

Morphing this bug to apply to all phones, not just ICS. Let's just always say Bookmark.

On ICS, we have a checkbox next to it, and on earlier phones we have a hollow star and a filled in star, which should be enough.

This patch:
* Removes the "bookmark_remove" string
* Stops changing the title of the menu item. It's always "Bookmark" now
* Changes the entity name of "bookmark_add" to just "bookmark"
* Removes the unused "bookmarks_title" string

Tested on Gingerbread and ICS. Added bookmark, removed bookmark and switched between tabs. The menu and the popup toast worked correctly on both.

If reducing l10n churn is a concern at this point, we could keep the ID as "bookmark_add".

there was enough string churn here I decided to go with the change for correctness

We can't reuse the bookmarks_add string, as that's a verb, while bookmark is a noun now. Same characters in English, but rather different words :-).

String freeze is in a week from now so that we can fix things like this on aurora still.
