Localization strings are improperly formatted, causing Fennec to crash. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=775142#c4.

There's a fix on central that changes the message ID, but 18 and 19 still need their strings to be updated.
It's the cause of the top-one crasher in Firefox 19.0a2 for Android.

You need to replace in mobile/android/base/android_strings.dtd for Beta and Aurora:
<!ENTITY suggestions_prompt "&#037; で検索語句の候補を表示しますか?">
by
<!ENTITY suggestions_prompt "&#037;s で検索語句の候補を表示しますか?">
Tomoya - have you had a chance to look into this yet?  We're halfway through Aurora 19's cycle now and it would be great to get a fix verified.

Rejected the most recent sign-off for 18, as this would otherwise show up there, too.

AKA, we'll need a fix for this on both beta and aurora.
Can I apply this same patch to Aurora?

Yes, I think this should work on both beta and aurora.
