build 2002053012 when searching with google from the typed URL bar, the query string that is sent to google contains 2 times "start=0"
(reproduction: type (including the quotes) "foo bar" in the URL bar, when the dropdown option for searching with google appears, click it
the google URLs do indeed seem to end up with two start=0 arguments. doesn't hurt anything much though. confirming.
From google.src > update="http://www.google.com/mozilla/google.src" It seems like google created the google-plugin?! ..maybe someone should drop google a mail?
On the issue of the value being placed in the URL twice. In testing, if the "name" is the same for both, one only needs to define inputnext. Inputprev will assume the the same name and factor. From AltaVista.src for example: <inputnext name="stq" factor="10"> <inputprev> NOTE: The <inputprev> still needs to be there or the "Previous" button will be disabled. Using similar code in your Google plugin should remove the annoyance without any adverse affects. Unless Apple Sherlock handles this differently or we can find a test case that fails we most likely will get a won't fix. Does Apple handle this the same way?
The inputnext and inputprev tags are unique to mozilla's implementation of sherlock. I'm not sure what apple's UI for retrieving subsequent results is. I'll look into it. Sam
