Triggered By:
Bug #778851 - Turn javascript.options.xml.content off by default
Unsurprisingly, this website uses e4x (and also doesn't work in Chrome):

var sp =
<searchlist>
	<provider group="1" name="Google">
		<image>google.png</image>
		<query type="web">http://www.google.com/search?q=</query>
	</provider>
....
</searchlist>;
Does it also not work in IE?

Nope, doesn't work in IE, Safari and Opera. View Source shows the same e4x code in all browsers.
"Off with it's head", then. ;)
Closing then. Thanks for bisecting this and filing a bug report, but unfortunately this website depends on a FF-only feature that is on its way out. See this page for more information:

Have we contacted the site authors?  We should send mail if we can find an address, at the least...
I will try to contact them.
Also thanks for all information.
