Summary: An exception is thrown in the logcat while adding the search engine from → JS Error: Error in adding an engine, new EngineURL: template uses invalid scheme!
I think this might be fixed by bug 937769. I'll land that now that the trees are open again, and we can see if that guess is correct.

Depends on: 937769
The bug is still reproducible on Nightly 28.0a1 (2013-11-19).
Looks like the bug is not related to bug 937769.
Changing dependencies because this is actually unrelated to the OpenSearch work - the reporter is adding the search engine from long-tapping the search box (not urlbar).

I tried to repro this, and was able to add the search engine - flaviu, can you think of anything else that might be different about your build?

Looks like the bug is tablet specific.
Tested on latest nightly build:
HTC ONE X (Android 4.1.1) - Not reproducible
Google Nexus 10 (Android 4.3) - Reproducible
Flags: needinfo?(flaviu.cos)
More or less the platform, but I doubt it.

Flaviu, I assume you can add other search engines like DuckDuckGo for example?
I wonder if this would be fixed by bug 790898.
Also, for more detailed error logs, you can try flipping "" to true in about:config, since it looks like the error happens in nsSearchService.js.
The bug is no longer reproducible.
