No, I'm not using a portable version (and I did not modify omni.ja). I do have around 20 search engines though, and a similar number of extensions, some of them with complex configuration that I would need to migrate into a new profile.

Create a new, clean Profile.
Open it.
Do the icons display?


Delete search.json.mozlz4.

Open that new profile again.

Do the icons display?
Fire 750, bring back 250.

Since you want to preserve the configuration, instead of deleting in this step --

-- rename the file searchOLD.json.mozlz4 to hide it from Firefox.

You can decompress the file and view its contents using my page here:

The JSON data contains much more detail than the summary table the page generates. How difficult it is to use that data is a different question

Just for the record; the problem disappeared in FF 75 :)
