User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/40.0.2214.91 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

Open firefox. 
Open Menu.
Goto to Options.
Click Search Option.
Now Remove some search engine links already present.
Add some more browser by using "Add more Search Engine ". 
Now click on "Restore Default Search Engines"




Actual results:

It adds those Search engines which were present by Default and were removed by user but it doesnot remove the new added Search Engines.


Expected results:

All the changes either addition or removal of search engines in list should be restored .
Ie: All those search engines added by user should be removed from list.
And All those search engines removed by user should be added.

The button does precisely what it says: it restores any default search engines that have been deleted. That makes this an enhancement request rather than a bug.
