I'm walking a fine line between Mozilla user and Lycos employee here, but since I want to be able to do Lycos searches using the Mozilla browser, I think I'm justified in reporting this. The interface currently used for the Lycos Search component of Mozilla is www-partner.lycos.com with a &part=MACOS. I don't know how you got that URL but that's not a public interface (but yes, it works) and you probably shouldn't spoof someone else's partner tag anyway. A more correct URL would be: http://www.lycos.com/srch/?query=keywords&loc=mozilla Or something to that effect, using the "public" interface. If you're trying to do something special by using or if there is a specific reason that I'm not aware of for using that interface, let me know and I'll see if we have similar functionality somewhere else or at least give you appropiate tagging... (This message was written completely of my own free will and does not reflect on my status as a Lycos employee or imply any connections between Lycos and Mozilla, Netscape, AOL, or anyone else. It's just me, damnit.)
We should be using our own search string. This way we get created for the abundant mozilla searches rather than the mac getting all the credit unless it screws up the sherlock files.

jpranevich, I appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Currently, Lycos is not available in Mozilla. (Note: on Mac, we use all Sherock files, including those including with Mac OS.) We'll be making deals with various search engines, and they'll be providing us with Sherlock files to use, so this issue will be resolved appropriately. Marking this bug FIXED.
