Bug 722352 and bug 724116 made changes to the Google search plugin that need to propagate to all locales.

google-jp.xml (x2) needs to be updated to reflect the changes. See for the latest en-US version.
Shall I make a patch or is someone else going to take this?
Matthew, if you could do a patch, that'd be surely appreciated.

This should apply to all 4 repos (ja/ja-JP-mac + m-c/m-a).

Does anyone know why "qu" rather than "q" is used for the search term query parameter for suggestions? I don't don't know where to find the commit history prior to HG usage to investigate for myself.

Hard to find, but the way to get to pre-Hg blame is:

I.e. remove "central" from the MXR URL, then use the "CVS Log"/"CVS Blame" links. Since this file was added on the MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH, you need to take a further step and check the revision log there, by changing "HEAD" to "MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH" in the log URL:

Unfortunately none of that is any more enlightening.

I imagine "qu" may have meant "UTF-8 encoded input" vs. whatever other encoding default "q" assumes, since the suggest URL doesn't contain the "ie" (input encoding) parameter. I can't test this right now because as far as I can tell the Japanese suggestions URL is broken (I get a 400 Bad Request response when trying to load it).
Review ping.

v.1 Include channel and client changes while preserving variances from en-US (m-a + m-c))

Getting my review out of the way, though the real review should come from the Japanese team. That doesn't necessarily have to be dynamis, if someone from the Japanese team can jump in, that'd be great.

Yeah, it works in Firefox. I can't get it to work in curl/wget for some reason, even with the same UA string/headers. Anyhow, I can't seem to observe any differences between q/qu.

Masahiko, can you do the review and landing for us here?
The patched search plugin works with Japanese search words.

We haven't updated m-c repos. So, I'll landing this to aurora (13.0) and beta (12.0).
Marking FIXED, thanks.

Please remember to sign-off when you tested this on the aurora nightlies.
