Description

STR:

1. Load https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4594
2. Click on "See All General Add-ons"

Expected:

Taken to a page with content -- I think it should link to the Search Tools category-landing page, no? https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:4

Actual:

You're taken to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:4/cat:82, which is devoid of any add-on content :-(

I think it's that the A9 add-on is slotted in the "General" category.

Comment 2

I think what it wanted is something like:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:4/cat:82?sort=name
It's missing a "?sort=name", "?sort=popular", etc.
Hardware: x86 → All
Maybe we should default to one of these sort orders for search engines. There's no use showing a content-less page, like ever, like totally.

This has 2 parts:

1)  There are no recommended add-ons so the top of the page is blank

2) Addon::getAddonsFromCategory() has a special case for querying for search engines which isn't getting hit here because we're looking for multiple 

Overall, this is part of a larger problem of search engines being treated differently than add-ons when they shouldn't be.  Since this is pretty ugly I want to fix it for 5.0.7.  r28705 changes the link so it sorts by rating as a stop gap.

Veriified FIXED - https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4594 links to https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/browse/type:4/cat:82?sort=rated.

Since this is verified fixed, I guess I'm going to have to file another bug to fix the real problem? :-)
