When you open the search engine manager and click on "Get more Search Engines", an AMO page gets opened but only search tools and no engines are listed. This is a regression and should have been changed in the last couple of weeks. Clicking the above mentioned link in Firefox should open, i.e: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search-engines/ But there is a redirect, which immediately redirects the user to: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search-tools/ From the user perspective the listed results don't make sense. We should really list search engines (providers) as what we have done before. All versions of Firefox are affected by that change on AMO.

We should be able to expand our Mozmill test to cover a regression like that.
Justin, something we can do in a short term to get this issue fixed?
Justin, ping? Would be nice if we can get some action on this issue.

Please fix the redirect to go to the search providers page.
(In reply to comment #5) > Please fix the redirect to go to the search providers page. Would you link to the page you have in mind? Andy: this may be in remora's .htaccess
Search engine page was bounced to search tools in: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=573166 https://github.com/jbalogh/zamboni/commit/cc172a10 It shows addons that are search engines. Not sure what to point to.
It sounds like that we want to point users to: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search-tools/multiple-search Or is that only a sub-set of all the available search engines on AMO?

That's just a subcategory of all the search providers (see list of categories on the left)
We don't seem to have a page that lists all search providers regardless of category. Maybe we should punt this until we can fix that with impala? Ideally this would link to the featured search providers.
Here, clicking the "Get more search engines" URL now goes to http://bodisparking.com/peersbros.com via a redirect from www.searchplugins.peersbros.com so I guess the problem is no nearer being fixed.
The Mycroft project provides a large collection of Search Engine Plugins for Firefox: http://mycroft.mozdev.org/
100% agree. Clicking "Get more search engines..." should take the user to http://mycroft.mozdev.org/ where you can find much more variety and 100s of useful results. At the moment it takes you to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search-tools/ where there are only 17 results.
There was a proposal to redesign this in bug 684297: http://f.cl.ly/items/0c0K0U2z1z16461q3R2P/Untitled-1.png
That design doesn't solve the main problem, which is that there's no way to get to a search engines section on AMO, where one can find all search engines (type=4 add-ons) that are listed on the site. I think we clearly need 2 different pages, one for search engines and one for extensions in the Search Tools category.
Hi, is there any update to this? Thanks
This bug is about adding a redirect (301 is fine) from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search-engines/ to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?atype=4 I suspect this is handled in the code somewhere around apps.browse.views.legacy_redirects
A PR in reply to #17 is at https://github.com/mozilla/zamboni/pull/1349
Vincent, can you please let us know when this fix has been pushed to production? Thanks.

Thanks Wil! I will check it again once alive and will initiate that we create a mozmill test for it.
This works great now. Thanks for the fix. We will implement a Mozmill test on bug 941477.
