User-Agent:       
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113

Using the mozilla.org search plugin (thru the Sidebar or the Location Bar)
redirects you to a URL like
http://www.mozilla.org/htdig-cgi/htsearch?config=htdig&words=phoenix&method=and&format=long.

Mozilla.org returns a 404 error:

Not Found
The requested URL /htdig-cgi/htsearch was not found on this server.

Apache/1.3.27 Server at www.mozilla.org Port 80

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open up the sidebar (F9)
2. Choose mozilla.org on the Search tab
3. Enter a search query

Actual Results:  
404 error

Expected Results:  
Search plugin should point to an actual search of mozilla.org (maybe using
Google) instead of a page that does not exist at mozilla.org

You need to remove the defaults from mozilla/profile/defaults/search.rdf as
well.
