This is an RFE for including an ODP search by default as in Firebird of old.  It
is handy having a directory search.  Yahoo could be taken off to make room as
Yahoo search is the same as Google.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
I don't think we ever had a dmoz search by default at any time.  Certainly not
in the Firebird days.

We added Yahoo to give a choice, lots of people do prefer yahoo, and a directory
search is not nearly as useful as an alternate search engine to most users.

This clearly is not going to happen, but I do think it would be more useful to
most people than at least some of the many SEs currently on there by default*
(especially when you consider that two of the SEs give exactly the same results).

>>I don't think we ever had a dmoz search by default at any time.<<
Mike: the removal of the ODP search (bug 213942) was verified by yourself.

*BTW, there should be any easy way to remove an SE from the search bar (e.g.:
shift+del) now it has been decided to put every SE and the kitchen sink in there
(instead of the useful old combination of DMoz & Google).
