Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
This adds too much complex UI to the Firefox custom installer. We want to keep things simple and comprehensible. Too many people will think that unchecking these options will mean that they won't be able to browse Yahoo! and Amazon, and too many people will think that installing these search plugins will install some kind of advertising toolbar. I'm marking this as WONTFIX, because it complicates the installer way too much.
How does this add any UI at all? The installer already has checkboxes for the DOM inspector and quality feedback agent, both which lack any real explanation at all anyway. It would be very simple to add checkboxes for these plugins along with a description at the bottom. Neither would require any UI additions.
As a user who moved from IE, I _really_ want this custom install option so that I can turn off search options I don't want/need (e.g. Creative Commons?). It'll be better once 284625 is addressed, sure, but it's still an annoyance when setting FF up on my relative's computers. Give me a Typical, Custom, even a Minimal (no themes or search bar stuff except Google). PS - Mr.Ebrahim, we're not all idiots - give the users some credit, or at least respect.
This isn't something we're going to do. Sorry.
