The current search engine in the search box gets 'stuck' in beta 11.
I have various search engines set up to use with my search box. Since beta 11 it occasionally gets 'stuck' on a search engine if I change.
i.e. if I change from Google to IMDB, I can get stuck on IMDB and am no longer able to go back to Google (or any other engine).
Wasn't a problem in earlier betas.
Error console displays this: Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIBrowserSearchService.currentEngine]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://browser/content/search/search.xml :: set_currentEngine :: line 0" data: no]

Gave this a go on Friday and initially it seemed to help, but the problem is back today. Thanks anyway.
Can anyone nail down some steps for reproducing this problem? I don't see it immediately after opening Firefox, but it often appears after browsing normally for a while.
A workaround for me is to open a new window (Ctrl+N). Change the search engine in this new window, then close it.
After doing that, the search bar in my original window works again.
