stop loading Sherlock files from disk
This patch removes support for loading Sherlock files from disk (profile, appdir). It doesn't remove support for loading them from the web (e.g. via window.sidebar.addSearchEngine).

We should probably relnote this: Sherlock-format search plugins in the application directory or profile will now no longer be loaded as of Firefox 24. This should affect very few users, but I think it's still worth noting.
addon-compat: this also prevents Sherlock search plugins (.src) from loading from add-on search plugin locations.
(though note bug 598697 means that this is only relevant to unpacked extensions to begin with)
developer note for people using search-plugins.We may have broke a lot of these due to this change
