install search engine?

what's the deal with Extras-->Install Search Engine?  What is this search engine, and why do I want to install it?  What are the terms of this software?  will it index all my files?  where's the privacy statement?  will clicking the link cause an install, or will I get a chance to find out all the answers to these questions?

That is for the IE7 search provider.

It still doesn't work. I assume they are working on it.

The search installer is fixed now. If yours isn't working, please delete it from your list and reinstall. We had the site URL configured with a now-defunct alias. Sorry 'bout the hassle.

It send me an error.

I try to install the search engine AND I have already installed the search engine from our own fogbugz system.

The error message is:
"Firefox could not install the search plugin from...
because an engine with the same name already exist"

We'll I suppose I couldn't have both.
