It seems that search plugins are being copied from the "[installation folder]\searchplugins" folder to the "[profile folder]\searchplugins" folder -- which causes them to show up twice in the list of search engines (after Deer Park is restarted). Removing search engines from the profile folder removes the duplicates from the list. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: Happens after running searches with different engines (but not always). I haven't found a 100% reliable way to reproduce it, but it happens frequently enough to be very noticable. Actual Results: After using multiple engines for a while and restarting Firefox, some search engines appear twice in the list (often, the duplicates do not have an icon). Expected Results: Search engines should not be duplicated (as with Firefox 1.0.x, Deer Park Alpha 1).
Relation with Bug 300738 ?
(In reply to comment #2) > Relation with Bug 300738 ? That bug is about search plugins coming back when an update to Firefox is applied (because the default search plugins are reinstalled with Firefox). That's not really the problem here -- I'm seeing plugins copied from the "global" searchplugins folder to the profile one (seems to happen when I'm switching and running searches with different engines, but is not 100% reproducable).
Sounds like a dupe of bug 299825
Yeah, looks like it. I guess it was just happening on an update -- and since I was deleting the "new" plugins from the profile folder, it kept happening again.
