Steps: ======== 1. Load https://addons-dev.allizom.org/en-US/firefox/ 2. Input "text" and click on Go button 3. Search results page is displayed at: https://addons-dev.allizom.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=text&cat=all&appver=3.6.23&platform=windows Note: appver/platform is picked up 4. In search results page do a search again ie click on Go button Result: appver/platform parameters are gone now resulting search page: https://addons-dev.allizom.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=text&cat=all
This is by design. If you are on the search results page, we don't want to prefill the appver and platform, since you can change that from the filters on the left. See bug 693360.

That's pretty confusing. Can we update that info when facets are changed instead of removing them completely?

So all facets should be preserved upon new searches? Category, tags, and appver/platform selections? My fear is that if we autofill appver/platform on search results from the Search page, I'm going to always have to click the "Works With" section, "Any Firefox," and "All Systems" to filter the results to add-ons I want to see. I hate to do it, but perhaps we can provide a checkbox to disable autofilling the appver/platform? We're doing this detection transparently, and I'm sure it can be pretty frustrating for users who have no idea what's going on.
I don't think we need to preserve all facets; I think we should preserve appversion and platform because if the user had done a new search from another page, they would be there again. Preserving them shouldn't cause us to encounter the case you're concerned about: if I search for term A, reset my platform filters, and search for term B, we would preserve the platform filters and therefore the SERP for B would be unfiltered. If I didn't reset them, things would continue as normal.

https://github.com/mozilla/zamboni/commit/4c72266 In addition to always showing the filtered appver and platform (even if it's not a facet), we now auto-detect the appver and platform - even on the search page. If the user chooses to filter by a different appver or platform, we now preserve those - even after another search with a different term (as long as the user doesn't leave the search results page). That's hot UX - IKR?
Verified as fixed in https://addons-dev.allizom.org/en-US/firefox/search/?q=text&cat=all&appver=3.6.23&platform=windows on Firefox 8 - Win 7 Postfix screenshot http://screencast.com/t/3GXBmce8Bane Closing bug.
