***Overview Description: 

	There are no search engine choices in the mac sidepanel search.

***Steps to Reproduce: 

1) Open up the search sidepanel

2) Click on the within 'All Engines' dropdown.

***Actual Results: 

	THe only thing in the dropdown are the words 'All Engines' with a checkmark and a separator.

***Expected Results: 

	Some category choices and and engine choices corresponding to each below.

***Build Date & Platform Bug Found: 

	MAC ONLY with 2000040709 builds.

Needless to say search is useless like this.

by the way, this combined with bug 34490 menas we have NO search functionality on the Mac, cc leger.

This works fine for me with a current build on the Mac.

Although, I'm running Mac OS 9.  Do you see this problem only with Mac OS 8.6 
(and not 9) ?

nah I just checked. We see this on OS 8.6 and 9 machines. Are you 'looking' at 
opt bits? Maybe this is a build packaging issue since it's just the Mac and it's 
been like this for a while now.

I was just looking at bug 34490 and I feel pretty sure this is a debug vs. opt issue. I checked all the moz vs. ns permutations as 

please look into this. we have NO SEARCH functionality whatsoever on Mac builds. nominating for nsbeta2

I checked in some changes last night regarding where search files are placed... 
so please re-test this bug with Monday's build.

I tried this again with the 2000042417 build and:

There are now category choices in the pulldown (Web, jobs, music, etc.) but there are still no search engine choices.

For an extra twist, each time I started up the browser and went to the search panel for the first time I was presented with a list of 
all the other sherlock files that reside on my mac but none of the Netscape provided search engine/sherlock files. This list then 
disappeared and became unrecoverable if I swicthced the category dropdown.

In short, (for PDT consumption) the behavior has changed but there is still no sidepanel* searching on the Mac.

*this may have fixed bug 34490 for url searches as they kinda work (but still with no results in the sidepanel).
