    I'd previously had a quick looksee of Fx 3 beta 1 in a virtual machine
    on Vista 64 but decided to install beta 1 and run it with Fx 2.
    That's okay (except for the OS showing beta 1 as the default browser)
    The only thing I copied over from Fx 2 was the bookmarks.html file,
    changed a few settings in Options, added AdBlock Plus and Flashblock.

    The first two search engines (Scroogle) from here:
    <http://mycroft.mozdev.org/download.html?name=scroogle&sherlock=yes&opensearch=yes&submitform=Search>
    are crashing Fx 3 (I know it's a beta) while loading the search
    results. On restarting Fx 3 the crash reporter fails to submit the
    reports and doesn't work, which seems to be related to bug #390568.

    I have an older copy of the Scroogle search engine in Fx 2 and it
    works okay in Fx 3 and the newer ones from the above URL work in Fx 2.

    Do the search engines work and not crash Fx 3 for anyone else?
    What would be the problem when the existing one (below) works okay?

    Copy of the existing Scroogle search engine from Fx 2:
