Firefox mobile 14.0b1 build 3, Android 4.0.4 (stock), Google Nexus S

If you tap a text input field long, you get the context menu offering 'Add Search Engine'. Please change it to 'Add as Search Engine', indicating that it's not a native search engine, indicating it's more likely to break.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to and tap the mail sign up field at the bottom long.
This is still the same text. 
More for inconsistency the Page Menu has the 'Add a Search Engine'
Version: Firefox 14 → Trunk
Well, 'Add a Search Engine' seems to be valid as there may be multiple search engines on one page, the 'Add Search Engine' being made 'Add as Search Engine' makes sense though, can I take up work on this?

This patch creates a new string named addSearchEngine2, this has been done in order to alert the localization team. This can be changed to replace the old string if that is seen to be suitable.

Technically, this is fine, modulo one nit.  I'm investigating whether the change is desired.

Remove the old value, since according to mxr, you've replaced all uses.

OK, let's just go with this.  Post a new patch with the nit addressed, update the commit message with r=nalexander, and post a try build (if you have access to try).

Why are we keeping the old string?

Looks good!

Sheriff: the commit message could use some light formatting (not required, but nice).

The username appears malformed; I would have landed with

hg qref --user "amoghbl1 <>"

but the tree is closed :(

Thanks, tomcat!

amoghbl1: Bugzilla said this was your first patch; is that correct?  (I feel like I've been chatting with you on IRC for quite a while.)  If so, congratulations!

From here, you might be interested in Bug 1029566 and Bug 1029548.  They're both related; the former is really valuable.

Thanks for your contribution, amoghbl1!
