Public bug reported:
I'm using FF 220.127.116.11+2nobinonly-0ubuntu1 on Gutsy.
I had the FF serach box set to Ubuntu package search, still from a
previous search a day earlier. Then I wanted to search for something on
google. After typing in the terms, I wanted to switch the box to use
google, but it didn't react at all.
I restarted Firefox. Now all the search engines were gone, just the
default icon was there. When I clicked it and chose "Manage search
engines", the list was empty and I could not do anything there, no
button would react.
I exited FF again, cd'ed to .mozilla/firefox/<random>, and did "rm
-search.rdf search.sqlite searchplugins/*", then restarted FF. Now the
default list of search engines is there again when I click the search
box's icon, but none of them work, and "Manager search engines" is still
Please let me know if I can do anything to help debugging this.
** Affects: firefox (Ubuntu)
