We need a static HTML page to host a bookmarklet that allows App developers to install their Apps from the Firefox Marketplace to their laptops.

Please reword as follows:

We're excited to say that we're close to a developer preview of our Apps ecosystem, including the Firefox Marketplace! In keeping with our focus on mobile, we're going to concentrate the developer preview on Android users. We'll be asking users to visit the Marketplace on their Android phones, install the Apps they discover there, and let us know what they think. We'll have more to say about that later this month.

To ensure that we don't distract our hardworking marketing, support, and testing folks from their Android and Firefox OS work during the developer preview, we have decided to temporarily disable the App install buttons on the Marketplace App detail pages.

We've heard from many of you that being able to install your Apps on your desktop machines is a useful development tool, and we don't want to stand in the way of you making more awesome Apps. Our solution is a simple bookmarklet that will allow you to continue installing Apps on your desktops. 

(the rest as before)

"temporarily disable the App install buttons on the Marketplace App detail pages." -> can we change this to "temporarily disable the App install buttons on the desktop Marketplace."?

(a) app install buttons are disabled on also category browse pages and search results not just detail pages.
(b) buttons are disabled only on desktop.
