I want to add http://www.mozdex.com/ as search engine in your search engine drop down.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
http://www.mozdex.com/ is open source search engine and I want it present in the search engine drop down.
Actual Results:  
But its not present nor am I able to add it.

Expected Results:  
It should be present by default.
If not present, I should be able to add it.
Well, you could click the "Support" link on Mozdex's front page, then click the flashing animated icon telling you to add their search plugin, or you could open the dropdown in the search box, select "Add Engines," see that it's not in the short list and click the link to "Browse through more search engines at mycroft.mozdev.org" and search for the plugin there.

But, use it as a default search engine for however many hundred million Firefox users? According to the Mozdex weblog, it just started over from scratch less than ten days ago, and sounds rather like a one-man show.

Note that "Add Engines" in the dropdown is not yet present in Firefox 1.5.0.4, but will be in Firefox 2.0. That's why there's a link to add the search-plugin on the support page.

Note that "Add Engines" is present in the dropdown in 1.5.0.4, and if I was mistakenly giving the trunk/bonecho version (rather than opening 1.5.0.4 to verify what it was called there) I would have called it "Manage Search Engines" ;)
