We can add another "first-time run" yellow bar similar to the one from
mozilla "Know your rights...."

But to say "About default search engine...." which should open a page
saying default search engine is yahoo if you want to support Ubuntu
development click here to change your default search engine to yahoo.
And here are instructions to how to change to any other search engine.

This way we will get:
1) More users using Yahoo search engine if they prefer to support
ubuntu and currently have a custom search engine.

2) Less people irrated about Yahoo with instructions on how to change
to a different one.

I haven't poked firefox to see how the "Know your rights...." bar is
implemented and i haven't yet seen the Upgrade experience with Lucid
with respect to this issue.

I will try it out once this feature is in the repo.

And BTW this doesn't affect me at all since I use Chromium =)))))) I
can change search provide to Yahoo in Chromium as well but will
Canonical get revenue share if I do it from Chromium?

I really want the h.264 issues solved with Chromium packaging and
Chromium become default browser in Ubuntu.... I can dream =)
