Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

  1. Go to
  2. Search for "plugin version" (without the quotes). The URL is
  3. Click "Page 2" link in the navigation menu.
  4. The connection is aborted, and you get a "This site can’t be reached" (ERR_SPDY_PROTOCOL_ERROR) message in Chrome or "Secure Connection Failed" in Firefox.
  5. Go back to step 2 and search for "plugin version" again. There's a Keyword/Author/Tag dropdown, so the resulting URL is (note the added type=term that was not there in the first query).
  6. The paging works as expected now.

Seems like some security rule is erroneously triggered on step 4.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Searches starting with "plugin" had been explicitly blocked, although was supposed to have been returning a proper error.
The block has now been lifted.
