we'll need this to be fixed before 1.5
I wouldn't say this link is broken, but rather that Answers.com is not handling it in the most appropriate way. The idea of the quick searches is to use them with keywords such as "dict <search term>" for example. All the other search engines handle the URL with "%s" at the end of it in some other form.
I'll take a look at/make a patch for this later, when i get home
rebron: I assume the answers.com people want the same tracking param from bug 309379 here as well?

This is going to land on the branch, alerting l10n to watch this. This affects those locales that used to have dictionary.com in their bookmarks quicksearches and those that already moved over to answers.com.
