It could be very useful for web owners to have ability to track browser version and specific field which was used to search using an OpenSearch plugin.

This extension should be supported.

IE7 supports this feature. If the search is initiated by the Search box, the referrer attribute is set to IE-SearchBox. If the search is initiated from the address bar the referrer attribute is set to IE-Address.

Support referrer extension

I think we probably want to make this value pref-configurable, instead of hardcoding it in nsSearchService.js. Other than that, this patch looks fine. Please feel free to assign the bug to yourself :)
