Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:34.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/34.0
Build ID: 20141125180439

Steps to reproduce:

Change search engine from the search bar.


Actual results:

Before FF 34: changing search engine was remembered and default was "last  used"
From FF 34: there is explicit default search engine and last used is not remembered


Expected results:

Expected behavior: "last  used" search engine is still accessible for subsequent searches
Proposed solution: add  "last  used" to the list of search engines in "Choose your default search engine"

I'm going to call this a duplicate of bug 1109851, since the use case seems the same.

I revert back to Unconfirmed for 3 reasons:
- bug 1109851 is more complicated, demanding different issues
- it's been almost 2 years since that one is not even defined, mentioning some additional problems
- if this one, clearly defined, is resolved, that can help bug 1109851

So, please confirm, hoping that someone will just revert this behavior to how it was.

Is there a workaround for this? For me this is a blocker, I'm still on FF 38 ESR because of this and because 45 ESR doesn't allow this previous search bar style.
