What did you do? ================ 1. Set up Yahoo! as default search provider in Firefox 2. Use browser search to search for "css font color" What happened? ============== The top result (from MDN) is a widget; its top link is to a page of MDN search results. This makes it seem like the most relevant, highest-weighted search result. But it's not: People looking for "css font color" want search results about that linking to pages about that -- not search results about that linking to pages of search results about that. What should have happened? ========================== The MDN search results link should not be presented as the most relevant/likely link. It should be pushed to the bottom of the widget or somehow de-emphasized. Is there anything else we should know? ====================================== See 2 attachments for an illustration. The first shows how this "more results" feature appears in Yahoo search results, and the second shows how the "more results" feature appears in a competitor's search results. The key difference is how prominent "more results" link is.

In comment 1, the top result (which uses a larger font than the others) links to this page: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/search?q=css%20background%20color The most relevant result is not that page of search results, but the very first result on that page: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/background-color
