Re: [Deskbar] End user question: No firefox integration

2006/11/26, Jose daLuz <jdaluz gmail com>:

If you're using Firefox 2 then the new opensearch search engines included with that release are not supported yet. See bug 348209 -- also, if I recall correctly, Mikkel Kamstrup Erlandsen has some messages on this list on the subject of getting those working.

I should have followed up on that bug (I've done so now)... I discovered that FF2 does infact not use OepnSearch descriptors as such. Meaning that they use them at install time, but they only save some custom search engine format.

I'll still try and get OpenSearch integration going for deskbar, but it wont give us back the search engine functionality I fear...

Also note that the web search thing uses the search engines as defined
in firefox (or epiphany smart bookmarks) so if those are empty, you will
get no results from deskbar.
