Remove search engine name from initial search suggestions prompt
When first doing a search, Firefox asks "Would you like to turn on Google search suggestions?" if Google is default, or Bing if Bing is default. When you switch your default, however, we don't ask again. We should remove the search engine name from this initial prompt, so it reads: "Would you like to turn on search suggestions?"
Ian, I argued in triage that we should ask when we switch providers under the assumption that some people may trust Microsoft for suggestions and not Google (or visa versa).
Really? The UI for changing your default search provider is *right* next to the UI for turning suggestions on and off. http://cl.ly/image/2T3U3t3l0u2R That feels to me like enough of a safety net for people to tweak defaults without being surprised. They could change their default provider, and then uncheck the Search Suggestions box right after, if they wanted.
I agree with Ian on this, fwiw. Can we go with that and re-evaluate if we get a lot of complaints from users?
ni? to dria to get a decision. If we want this for 30, we need it before the end of next week, I can make the patch (if it's as simple as removing the engine name from the string).

Yes, let's just remove the engine name from the string.
