Then close Firefox first and then delete the last selcted search engine. It also
occurs the same error -> no search plugin available after restarting Firefox!!!

Is there any way to remove a search engine from the Firefox UI?
Resolution: DUPLICATE → ---
And what is when no search engine is available (e.g. all deleted)? How can I add
an engine from the Firefox UI?
