Your response that many search plugins for Mycroft no longer work. Using the Mozilla on Mac OS X I had not noticed this. All of the Apple suoolied plugins for Sherlock work with Mozilla exactly as if they were developed for Mycroft. I don't have any knowledge of the legal/copyright issues which may be involved, but would porting Sherlock plugins be an easy route to go. Would using all or part of the Sherlock plugins (supplied by Apple for Sherlock) save a lot of work? Especially for Linux the porting of plugins may be possible--I'm not sure about Windows.

BTW I hope the developers will allow Mozilla on the Mac continue to share the Apple supplied Sherlock folder for search engines.
