Switch default search engine to DuckDuckGo
Upstream Tor Browser has done that, since disconnect.me keeps on redirecting to duckduckgo and users are annoyed/scared by that. We should switch our localization extension to use duckduckgo too.
Tor Browser: switch to DDG as the default search engine.
This is what Tor Browser has, and Disconnect.me has been re-directing to
DDG for some time, only confusing users.
Tor Browser: drop the Disconnet.me search engine plugin.
It's re-directing to DDG, which is our default, so what is the point?

Now we localize (the UI only) for DDG. This branch also sneaks in a few other search plugin-related changes, in particular that "unwanted" plugins also are purged from the langpacks -- apparently they were introduced there some time ago, and since then only English locales have had the cured set of search engines. Whoops!
intrigeri, will you review'n'merge?

Is it on purpose that when logging in with a non-English locale, one gets only the localized DDG? If yes, feel free to merge after running the affected automated tests (I didn't do this and I think that Jenkins doesn't either). If not, merge as well but file a ticket about it :)

Yes -- only the UI is localized, not search results, which I think is fine.
If yes, feel free to merge after running the affected automated tests (I didn't do this and I think that Jenkins doesn't either).
