When bring up this panel the list of engines popup is empty, even though by default Netscape is selected. Selecting a default search engine is not preserved across sessions, users have to do it over again on next start of app, seems to default back to Netscape search. recommended: a) fill in currenty selected search engine b) honor user's search engine preference across sessions
The 'no default search engine' is covered in bug 44036; not sure about the other issue.

Summary: Prefs/Internet Search Panel: Engines List empty, settings not preserved across session → Internet Search settings (prefs) not preserved across session
my testing shows that if you select another engine e.g AOL search, quit, restart, and do a URL bar search, the search is done with AOL - just like you selected. However, the widget still shows a 'blank' selection when you go to look at the pref. The pref is having the desired effect, maintaining the functionality, it's just the widget that's misbehaving. That being said, I believe this to be a dupe of bug 44036 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 44036 ***
