Currently, we load search engines when the browser app is loaded for the first time. We need to move these to the system app
The search engines are stores in an object store in the browser app indexeddb, so we'll also need to figure out where these go. A new datastore?
I think we talked about storing a small amount of data in plain json files before.

The list of search engines should eventually be stored in Rocketbar settings, the design of which is still under discussion.

Why does this block bug 938171 ?
I was just linking in everything around bookmarks to that bug, and it looked like a bookmark issue at the time. Unlinked.

Kyle, we discussed this at length and in the release that includes Rocketbar, we won't offer the ability to configure other search engines (though it will likely be there in the future).  Given that, what is the best course of action to deprecate this functionality for the time being?
Flags: needinfo?(pdolanjski) → needinfo?(kyle)
Seeing this is a feature of the browser, which we'll now have around 'til 1.5, I can just leave it there and it'll be removed when the app itself is removed. Default search engine is stored in the browser's DB, so it's not affecting the rest of the system anyways. I'll go ahead and resolve this as wontfix now. If we want to actually remove this feature from the browser for 1.4, we should make another bug, but I'll leave that up to you.
