Mozilla Firebird Makes Installing Additional Search Engines Easier

With the checkin, a new menu item 'Add engines...' has been added after the installed plugins. This kind of bookmark will take you to the Mycroft download page. See a screenshot here: http://mycroft.mozdev.org/images/fbshot04.png."

This change is just one of many recent enhancements made to Mozilla Firebird recently. Look out for an article tomorrow examining some of the other highlights.

With typeahead find I think there's no need to make the search bar default to find in page, and because it's not obvious to all users that clicking on the icon brings up a menu of things to choose from I believe they should default to a search engine (probably google)
