Marketplace download suggestions are present. When selecting Mi Movistar at this point, the user will be taken to an error page on marketplace claiming that app is unavailable in the user's region.

This should be in the bulk API dumps already but let me know if something looks off there

We're discussing this feature with UX to determine feasibility.
Also making sure you guys know this feature doesn't require Gaia code change.

Given that this won't hold up the OS release, not blocking, but we definitely would like to have a fix in place for this.

I realize this is resolved fixed as of 3-09-14, however in 1.4 with variables below i'm still seeing this happen. I'm commenting because I did not see any uplift comments. If you would like me to write a bug since it's been awhile I can do that.

When searching Mi Movistar in there is a Firefox Marketplace icon in the suggestions below. Tapping this will open marketplace with content related to Mi Movistar.

For searches for apps, we offer a selection of web-based apps that search for apps, first among them the Firefox Marketplace. Most of the time this is a service to customers as they can enter the Marketplace and download the app, but occasionally they may be searching for an app not offered in their location. We don't feel that this is in and of itself problematic as users were looking for that app and may not have been aware it wasn't available to them.
In addition to Martha's explanation, I'd like to clarify that this result that you're seeing is not the previous "Mi Movistar" marketplace download suggestion.
