Description Brion Vibber 2009-01-26 17:44:14 UTC
Same issue as bug 13778 -- the "fulltext" parameter in the default submit button doesn't get submitted by Internet Explorer if you hit enter in a text field.

As a result, fulltext searches from a form end up performing a "go" exact-match search on submission, which isn't what was intended and sometimes gives surprising results.

Forms intended to be fulltext-only need to include a hidden field providing the "fulltext" parameter so it will actually get sent.
