I'm a bit confused Richard. Can you please provide a better description of what is happening here? 

1. Install Firefox Aurora 23.0a2 2013-05-26 and start with a new profile
2. Install DuckDuckGo Plus 0.2.25 from
> Asked if I want DuckDuckGo added to my search engines
3. Click Add
> Search Bar search engine is set to DuckDuckGo
> Awesomebar search engine remains Google
> Home page remains as default about:home page
4. Change default search engine back to
5. Check for and install Aurora updates then restart Aurora
> Search Bar search engine remains set to Google
> Awesomebar search engine remains set to Google
> Home page remains set to about:home

Under these circumstances I cannot reproduce what you are seeing. Please provide more details so we can attempt to reproduce what you are seeing. If you can no longer reproduce this please resolve this bug WORKSFORME.

Similar type of action that is happening in this bug here.

However, my experience was with my ongoing profile, not a new one in the presupposition described.

Only after Upgrade to 2013-05-27 of Aurora 23s2, did this appear, and now with 23.0a2 2013-06-04 (update 26 MB)appears not to be taking place.

To me, it is unknown if resolved at this point. Will Test with fresh download and empty profile.

Anthony: what type of additional details do you need? -R

So is this "fixed" now for you?
