The test case specifies that on pressing "Restore" button on removing a search engine, it should recover the search engine. The "Restore" button remains inactive and hence unclickable. The only way to restore the engine back is by re-installing it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to the Search field at top right hand corner
2.Click on the Search menu on the left hand side of the Search box.
3.Select "Manage Search engines".
4.Select any search engine and click on "Remove".
Actual Results:  
The "Restore" button is inactive and therefore not clickable.

Expected Results:  
The "Restore" button has to be active in order to do further action.

The "Restore" button is only active when you use the "move up" and "move down" buttons. In order to restore the search engine, re-installation is necessary.

"Restore Defaults" works fine for me (on Windows).
Component: Menus → Search
QA Contact: menus → search
Version: unspecified → 3.1 Branch
Note that the button is "Restore Defaults" (defaults meaning the engines that are included in Firefox by default). That button intentionally doesn't allow you to un-delete a user-installed plugin.
Though you can just "Cancel" the dialog if you do end up accidentally removing an engine.
