#3004 closed change (invalid)

As of #3003, DuckDuckGo is the default search engine for all locales.
Chinese users currently cannot use our default search engine, DuckDuckGo, at all. We need to set Baidu as the default for them.

What to change

We currently use a special build for Chinese users that will use Firefox's country detection and properly pre-select Baidu. This is, however, logic that should be within the app itself: It should select Baidu for Chinese users, and DuckDuckGo for everybody else. The geolocation lookup is not necessary, it suffices to do this based on the user's locale.

One could argue that this was superseeded by #3047 - I suggest we close this one and have #3047 block the issues this one is blocking, instead.
