Attached patch SM searchplugin changes (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Yahoo and Google search over HTTPS now work in a useful way, so we should do the same switch as Firefox. We also need to match the search plugin changes from Bug 959576.

|client=firefox| Does this mean that monetization goes to Mozilla instead of SeaMonkey?

SM searchplugin changes

To answer Philipp's question: No. There's no monetization of search suggestion, just via results.  client= in that context returns different formats.  i.e. "toolbar" returns XML.  If it was related to revenue, it'd have to be a conditional.

Other feedback:

* You may want to change appId in the Yahoo plugin to something distinct.  It's not a big deal though.
* I'd recommend switching the suggestions URL in the Google plugin to use Params like the "text/html" version.  It's really much more readable that way, which is why the yahoo plugin changed when we updated it recently.
