Since I don't think we're going to get this in good enough shape for Firefox 4 we should just remove this category. Ben, this is another super-easy bug that I'm sure you can have a patch for quickly!
Can we please do this with a hidden pref? That way we can work on it while it's still disabled per default.
Let's make this a little more of a challenge. If we fix bug 553483 and make the search category work the same as languages, it shouldn't show if there are no search add-ons. That way it'll still work in the development builds on the branch but not on nightlies.
Ben, could you work on this bug this upcoming week? Would be great to have it hidden at least for our testday on June 11th.
Henrik, I have been working on this bug. Bug 553483 and this bug are basically the same bug, just for different Add-on Manager categories. So, my patch for that bug will fix this bug.
Thanks Ben. Let's note it in the whiteboard.
