While working on bug 977200, I found that our built-in flow doesn't match the mock-ups specified in that bug. I think there are some changes we should make to the product so that the flow with and without the add-on is the same, except with the add-on you get the page action item and the "Firefox homepage" provider option.

Points I think we need to address:
* Add "Subscribe to page with" title to prompt with subscription services
* Add a title to the prompt that appears when there are multiple feeds on the page. This isn't part of the mock-ups, but I think we should do it for consistency. I propose something like "Choose feed".

Gah, I lost this in a pile of pinned tabs, sorry. I agree with both of your suggestions, Margaret, and your proposed strings seem fine to me.

This patch just adds titles to our existing subscribe prompts. I'll needinfo ibarlow for feedback on the strings.

I wonder if users even know what the word "feed" means. But if UX is ok... :)

I would probably vote for just "Subscribe with".

Let's double check with ibarlow. For the "Subscribe to page with" string, we'll want to be consistent with my feeds add-on (right now that uses "Subscribe to page with").

Is the question here about whether we can simplify the context menu title to just read "Subscribe with"? 

If so, that sounds fine to me.

I updated my patch to match this suggestion, and I also updated the home feeds add-on:

I'll land my patch whenever the tree re-opens...
