    I'm a little sick of having corporate logos permanently displayed in my
    search box (they are burning their way into my visual cortex) -- anyone
    know if they can be changed or removed somehow?

    I don’t think so. When I was testing the RC for 2.0, I used an old
    profile from 1.5, and sometimes those icons disappeared, but then
    magically reappeared once they were used again. I think they are
    auto-updated. So even removing these icons from your chrome (they are
    somewhere in browser.jar, you could unpack that, remove them and repack
    it. On second thought, I think they are in toolkit.jar now), will
    probably not help.

    I think in Firefox 2.0 these icons are embedded in the xml-files in the
    searchplugins-folder of the Firefox-programfolder.
