    Search Problem at Mozilla Add-Ons (Firefox 2.0.0.1

    Hello, it seems that since Firefox 3.0 was released I've had a problem searching Mozilla Add Ons. I click on the advanced dropdown tab but before I can make any selections the rotten box closes again. I'm limited to very basic searches. Has anyone else had this problem. Is there a cure. Thanks,

    Chris (Hunt)

    This is a known problem, I submitted a bug report on it last week. It will need to be fixed by Mozilla.

    Thanks, Tony, it's good to know that the problem isn't anything I've done at my end! Hope it gets fixed soon.

    There is somebody working on the bug, it has been classified as a major regression and targeted to be fixed with the next maintenance release of the add-ons site. I do not have an anticipated date for this but it should not be too far away, there are regular maintenance updates to the site.

    Update: A patch for this has been created and checked in for QA testing.
    I have done some brief testing on it and advanced search appears to be working again with Firefox 2. This should be fixed on the live page when Mozilla release version 3.4.6 of the add-ons site, I still do not know when that will be.

    It looks fixed and "live" on my end, Tony. It's funny how this came up for me. I was just saying to someone a couple of days ago that for most everything I do concerning "Mozilla" my entry point is here: Mozilla Firefox & Thunderbird. Then I usually click on the Add-Ons button up on top of the page and end up at the page referenced in Chris' link.

    It has been recommended by another Lounger that the Clippings add-on comes in handy for inserting boilerplate text in both Fx and TB. You can easily add to the context menu those oft-used text strings and it's already helping me out a lot. I'll now blush when I admit that this is my FIRST Fx add-on! I've tried to stay as plain-vanilla as possible all this time.
