Nit: Can we change noApps.middle from: 'app store' to 'Mozilla Marketplace'

Enhancement: Should there be provided a sentence summary here about what Web Apps are? On an empty about:apps there's plenty of room in the existing container.
Severity: normal → enhancement

Simply changes "app store" to "Mozilla Marketplace" and bumps the entity

This is going to be 1% of 1% of 1% of users, but I do wonder about people who don't want to use the Mozilla apps store. What I like about what we have right now is that its easy to change (except for some icon issues....)

This string is likely also going to piss off localizers. Is there a better way to fix it?

Not a priority right now though.

How? We use the same "pre", middle", "post" scheme as desktop uses for such things.
