Mozilla Project Update: Determining Direction - Part II

Mozilla Project: Localized Search in Firefox's Search Box
After giving a few ideas some lengthy consideration, I've decided to take the approach to extend Firefox's search box so that it automatically adds search engine plugins to the search bar's drop-down list and then propagates search plugins to the top of the list when the browser encounters a web site that offers a search engine plugin and an OpenSearch description file. I've decided on this approach because the scope of the project appears to fit with the time constraints with which I'm working, it challenges my knowledge and abilities, and much of the code exists for what I'm attempting to achieve with this project.
