Description Stephen L. Black 2006-04-21 15:03:43 UTC
When I search for the notorious Christopher Jon Bjerknes on Wikipedia using
Firefox, it doesn't find the page. However, I can get to the page from
the link provided on the Mileva Maric page. When I instead use Internet
Explorer, the search succeeds. Other than that, my Firefox displays Wikipedia
just fine.  It seems that Firefox dislikes Mr. Bjerknes as much as I do. But I
think it's probably just a bug.

Cant find it using the search button on although a direct hit
works. Might be a problem with the lucene search engine (maybe the search index
need an update ?).

This is just the index age.
