It looks like SEARCH_DEFAULT_ENGINE is only filled in during the "gather-telemetry" event which I believe is only fired after "idle-daily". 

This means that only one session during a 24 hour period will report the SEARCH_DEFAULT_ENGINE value.
I believe other Telemetry probes also incorrectly depend on "gather-telemetry".. I will file other bugs once this one is confirmed

Hm, ok :-/
We could just see that we submit this on (or close to) startup. Sound reasonable?

Blake, does this seems reasonable?
Do you happen to know if we could have perf issues with touching the search service too early?

Submit default search engine on startup too

It seems okay to me, the one thing I'm worried about is that the search service might not be initialized at this point.  Should we wait for browser-search-service's init-complete notification (sent from http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/components/search/nsSearchService.js#2989 and http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/components/search/nsSearchService.js#3013)?

(You could try pinging florian or mconley for the answer to that question…)

Hm, or, if search service init is a concern...
Maybe it makes more sense to move over to nsBrowserGlue.js and just hang off "browser-search-engine-modified" and "browser-search-service" here:

Florian or MattN, can you comment on comment 4 and comment 5 so i can do something here this week?

I agree that it makes more sense to collect this information in nsBrowserGlue in those observer notification handlers.

Fixed this to hang off the referenced search service events.

I understand the impulse to brace these - my instinct says the same thing. Unfortunately, the rest of this file uses the "no braces for one-liner blocks" convention, and we should probably stick to that convention (or change the entire file).

A little sad, but fair point.

Benjamin, do we still have a need to uplift this to at least aurora?

Yes please.
