User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.2b4) Gecko/20091124 Firefox/3.6b4 Build Identifier: If I select Thunderbird as the application on the Mozilla Add-ons web site and then search for something it frequently returns add-ons for both Thunderbird and Firefox despite the fact that the web site clearly identifies itself as "Add-ons for Thunderbird". I'm not talking about returning the wrong web page when an add-on exists for both Thunderbird and Firefox or a confusing web page for an add-on that works for both applications. I mean add-ons that are not available for Thunderbird. For example, search for tabs. It returns 21 add-ons. The search results include https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10828 (New Tab King) https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/13720/ (Inline Browser) https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/5142 (Print All Tabs) https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7643 (Prevent duplicate tabs) https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3662 (RemoveX - tab-menu remover) https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7606 (Lathe2) https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/13670 (Ebay calendar) https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/10868 (Mozilla Labs - Weave Sync) This is listed as a Thunderbird add-on but its not clear that it really is one. It seems like an add-on for Firefox 3.5 or later. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/7607 (Blues for Peace toolbar) It does not specify what version it supports. This is listed as a Thunderbird add-on but its not clear that it really is a Thunderbird add-on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/11642 (Ultimate-Guitar.com search plugin) It does not specify what version it supports. This is listed as a Thunderbird add-on but its not clear it really is one. My impression is that application specific searches aren't, and that if that bug is fixed there is still a problem due to the database incorrectly identifying some add-ons as Thunderbrid add-ons. Reproducible: Always
I can reproduce. Dave Dash, can you take a look?

I think this is almost the same as bug 532988. See discussion there for possible solution.
Depends on: 532988
Everything looks fine except for: Linky and New Tab from here.

Hey Eric - Looks fixed to me on https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/z/en-US/thunderbird/search/?q=tabs&cat=all&lver=any&atype=0&sort=&pid=1&pp=20&lup=&advanced= Mind double-checking? Thanks!
Much better but that search still returns (Ultimate-Guitar.com search plugin 20090425) https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/z/en-US/firefox/addon/11642/ I also tried searching for filter on the preview version of the web site. https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/z/en-US/thunderbird/search/?q=filter&cat=all&lver=any&atype=0&sort=&pid=1&pp=20&lup=&advanced= It returns several firefox/search add-ons (guiGoog1.2b 20090825) https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/z/en-US/firefox/addon/13915/ (עץ הדטה - חיפוש ישראלי ממוקד 20100101) https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/z/en-US/firefox/addon/14356/ (Octoprice shopping search & comparison engine 20081030) https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/z/en-US/firefox/addon/9431/ (Nigma Search 20090421) https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/z/en-US/firefox/addon/11533/ (FileDigg - pdf search engine 20100108) https://preview.addons.mozilla.org/z/en-US/firefox/addon/12373/ It looks like the only remaining problem is its still returning Firefox search add-ons when you search Thunderbird add-ons.
