In any profile with edited / extended list of one-click search engines, removing a default search engine (like duckduckgo) results in no options to get it back, short of resetting all search engine, and loosing all customizations or added search engines.

Expected result: A way to re-add, or recover a removed engine without removing all other customizations.
Oh, it actually is possible, as pressing "Restore Default Search Engines" actually preserves customizations.
I was afraid to click the button, fearing I will loose all customization, so this still seams like an issue.
