Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

Expected Result:

Going to about:home or start.ubuntu.com/10.04/ should result in the Yahoo version of the start page.

Actual Result:

I always get the Google version of the start page despite my search provider selection in Firefox.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open Firefox
2. Set search provider to Yahoo
3. Navigate to about:home or http://start.ubuntu.com/10.04/
