Description John Morris 2004-03-30 21:23:09 EST
Description of problem:

After installing the errata release of mozilla the search button no
longer works correctly.  Searches return a generic page at Netscape
instead of results from Google. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set your default search engine to Google.
2. Run up2date, get the latest Moz.
3. Type something into the location bar and click search.
Actual results:

A generic search page at Netscape.com

Expected results:

A page of results from Google.

Additional info:

Going into prefs and changing search engines to Netscape, searching
(and getting the generic page instead of results) then changing back
to Google again will fix the problem.

Same problem:  Updated from mozilla-1.4.3-3.0.7 to mozilla-1.7.10-
and the search engine was changed from "Google" to "Ask Jeeves".  (I seem
to remember earlier updates converting my search from Google to Netscape, too.)

Also annoying:  After saving the new search engine preference, a popup
appears telling the user it is necessary to shutdown, and restart the Mozilla
application for the preference change to take effect.  The restart is *not*
required for this change.
