Google search engine has disappeared from search options which makes Bing the default
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android 8.1.0; Mobile; rv:66.0) Gecko/66.0 Firefox/66.0 Steps to reproduce: Auto updated to 66.0a1. Searched for something (assumed using Google) Actual results: Bing results showed up. Bing had been made default and Google completely disappeared from search options Expected results: Search using Google
I can confirm this on my Pixel 3, using the latest nightly build. Regression range: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=d0e13414d6512c9fe84911a0dd730e4fb4a28c27&tochange=e16b548dc14c58efd713bfac10a5944fd6bdfc5e. Bug 1510296 looks like a strong suspect. ni on :mkaply

This is fixed with the backout. Sorry about the trouble. When I reland, I'll have mobile and desktop patches together.
Thanks for the quick reply.
I can verify the backout fixes it - the only thing is I had to set my default search engine back to Google (from Bing).
Is there any follow up we can do here? Would anyone who hit this issue have had their default changed?
> Is there any follow up we can do here? Would anyone who hit this issue have had their default changed? This should be very limited and most people should get it changed back automatically (if they didn't go to settings and change it there). So I don't think we need to do anything here.
Marcia and Julien had to change it back manually. That's why I mention that I don't think it's changing back automatically. We can keep on the lookout for further reports or we can do some testing. Is there telemetry on Nightly that tells us aggregate info about what the default search engine is set to?
I tested this again on my Pixel 2. Here is my process: 1. Uninstalled the existing Firefox Nightly from my Pixel running Android Pie 2. Restarted my device 3. Sideloaded the apk from 12-21 4. Confirmed that Bing was the default by checking settings and performing a search 5. Updated to the latest build (12-26) 6. Confirmed that Bing is still set as my default and that I have to manually switch the search engine back to Google. I did not clear app cache is storage, but I am guessing even if that was needed an average user isn't likely to do that.
Priority: -- → P1
I'm investigating why it didn't change back. We haven't received any other reports that I have found. I think because it was nightly and right before Christmas, not many folks got the update.
