Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

When I do a search using the context menu for selected text, a new tab
opens to "http://www.google.com/firefox" without any search terms.

To reproduce:

1) Open Firefox
2) Goto a site
3) Select a few words on the page
4) Right-click and choose "Search Google for" menu option
5) A new tab opens at "http://www.google.com/firefox" but the search is not performed.
