1. Search for "proxy connection".
2. The third result should be 
"Firefox cannot load web sites but other programs can

The proxy server is refusing connections; Server not found. Verify that your connection settings in Firefox are correct. You can use the settings of a ... "

3. Look at the URI. It's <http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Firefox+%D0%BD%D0%B5+%D0%BC%D0%BE%D0%B6%D0%B5+%D0%B7%D0%B0%D0%B2%D0%B0%D0%BD%D1%82%D0%B0%D0%B6%D0%B8%D1%82%D0%B8+%D0%B2%D0%B5%D0%B1-%D1%81%D0%B0%D0%B9%D1%82,+%D0%B0%D0%BB%D0%B5+%D1%96%D0%BD%D1%88%D1%96+%D0%B1%D1%80%D0%B0%D1%83%D0%B7%D0%B5%D1%80%D0%B8,+%D0%BD%D0%B0%D0%BF%D1%80%D0%B8%D0%BA%D0%BB%D0%B0%D0%B4,+Internet+Explorer+-+%D0%BC%D0%BE%D0%B6%D1%83%D1%82%D1%8C>.

It should be <http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Firefox+cannot+load+web+sites+but+other+programs+can>.

I'm making this critical.  It's impossible to do LiveChat when you can't give people links to articles that make sense.  Most of our new helpers don't know how to manually make new URLs and it would slow them down a lot if they can't just click on a search result and copy over the URL.  (Especially since it works fine on some pages and not on others.)

My testcase is search on:

smart bookmark folders

first link is Smart Bookmarks Folders but the URL is http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/%E3%82%B9%E3%83%9E%E3%83%BC%E3%83%88%E3%83%96%E3%83%83%E3%82%AF%E3%83%9E%E3%83%BC%E3%82%AF%E3%83%95%E3%82%A9%E3%83%AB%E3%83%80 (Japanese)  The content is English.

http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Smart+Bookmarks+Folders works fine if you manually enter it but http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Smart+Bookmark+Folders (easy typo) gives a scary 404.  We can't have that when our helpers are giving out links.

No, but search results do still contain links to articles in other locales. I wonder if this is a result of l10n fallback. :-\
That sounds like a separate bug though.

Okay, should I bother filing a bug, or is that going to be fixed when we switch search engines?
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
File a bug to keep track of it, seeing as it's now official that you like to file bugs. :)
