  1. Addons.mozilla.org still missing Advanced Search features

    The new addons site has been up for almost one month and the "Advanced Search" for addons has not be restored in any manner that I
    can find.

    I was hoping for a big improvement in this area, including a direct url link to the advanced search that could be bookmarked and
    used by "Add to Search Bar" extension, and an enhanced advanced search form, and instead of being improved it appears to be gone.

    I've placed the following page on my site listing several problems.
    http://www.mvps.org/dmcritchie/firefox/addons_2007.htm
    and kind of working around the problem for now anyway by using the old search engine on the old addons site. Hopefully this will
    this will get corrected before the workaround and old site is no longer available.

    For me, your links to the old interface IP now redirect to
    mozilla.com's main page:

    https://63.245.209.31/firefox/3682

    I guess I shouldn't have mentioned the workaround,
    now nobody can use it.

    Anyway the main problem is that the Advanced Search
    is not available aside from not being improved, and of
    course there are those other annoyances.

    Hi Wil,
    Thanks have added that and four other bug reports that are not
    actually marked as duplicates to my page (must be reloaded)
    http://www.mvps.org/dmcritchie/firefox/addons_2007.htm

    I've not been very successful in searching for bug reports to match
    problems so never actually looked. But having such a report in hand
    I can see the dates and search of "search addons" finds these.
    Not that finding a bug report is a solution, and the real problem
    I think is that the advanced search lacked documentation
    and a specific webpage.

    Hi >Q<, Using the old search by its IP address was working
    for awhile after I'd discovered it, but having the results
    from the old search actually pointing to individual
    addons on the new site only worked for one day (Sun-Mon).
