Bug Description

It seems that Ubuntu overrides Firefox's DuckDuckGo search plugin with a version that doesn't support search suggestions.

e.g. I receive this file:
http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~mozillateam/firefox/firefox.utopic/view/head:/debian/searchplugins/en-US/duckduckgo.xml

While Mozilla already includes their own DuckDuckGo search plugin which supports search suggestions:

Since I also do not get any search suggestions, I suppose I have the same problem on 15.04.

FYI Debian removed their previously included DuckDuckGo search engine in favor of the one included upstream. Might want to do the same for Ubuntu.

In addition to the search engine suggestions, additional interesting changes have been included as well.
