YouTube is the default search engine in the Unsafe Browser of 3.0~rc1
YouTube is the default search engine in the Unsafe Browser of 3.0~rc1.
Typing in the address bar or the search field will search in YouTube instead of Google.
Unsafe Browser: remove the search bar.
It currently defaults to the wrong addon, but really its presence only
encourages unsupported usage so let's just remove it altogether.

I fuzzed around with the prefs.js of the Unsafe Browser, it seems that the two settings
don't change anything (at least with my tests done with changing the value to Bing, Twitter, etc).
#2 Updated by spriver about 2 years ago
Apparently the available search engines and settings for search are now stored in the (compressed) file
search.json.mozlz4 (for guidance for decompression/compression to/from a plain text .json read http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=3023201&p=14708969).
It seems that the value (in the uncompressed .json) for changing the default search engine is the parameter
We don't ship this file for the Unsafe Browser, maybe shipping such a file solves this problem, but simply copying the
/usr/share/tails/chroot-browsers/unsafe-browser/ won't do the trick (at least on a live system for testing purposes).

- Assignee changed from anonym to intrigeri
- % Done changed from 0 to 50
- QA Check set to Ready for QA
- Feature Branch set to bugfix/12540-disable-search-in-unsafe-browser
I suggest we simply hide the search box in the Unsafe Browser, since it's not needed for the intended use case. And perhaps we could do #12540 at the same time, for consistency.
Sounds perfect to me! Please review'n'merge into testing!
