Hi Alex,

Today a new FF update came out, and I can confirm the problem lies with
the 'Ubuntu Firefox Modifications' extension.

I have taken screenshots of the process I took to confirm this.

This screenshot shows the Ubuntu Update Manager listing the new updates and, on the right, my Search Engine List.

2. http://img2.imageshack.us/img2/4876/screenshot1b.png
Before begging the update process, I went Tools->Addons and 'disabled' the 'Ubuntu Firefox Modifications' addon.
I then restarted FF as requested

3. http://img134.imageshack.us/img134/8049/screenshot2u.png
I ran the update (not pictured) and restarted FF afterwards (notice the FF update page).
My Search Engine List displays exactly the same Search Engines as before the update.

4. http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/4255/screenshot3z.png
I went Tools->Addons and 'enabled' the 'Ubuntu Firefox Modifications' addon again.
You will clearly see the 'Ask.com' Search Engine has been added to my Search Engine List.

Thanks,
-Peter
