    1. Go to the installation directory of Mozilla or Firefox. (1)
    2. Locate the subfolder "searchplugins". (2)
    3. Delete both SRC and GIF/PNG files for each plugin.
    4. Restart Firefox and the deleted plugins will have disappeared.

    Example: If you want to get rid of the default Google search plugin,
    you will delete "google.src" and "google.png".

    If you want to remove the default Google search plug-in you can just use
    "customize" and drag it off.

    Many thanks - problem solved. Maybe someone could be an extension to
    perform search engine plugin removals from the context menu...??
