Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
  1. Go to the Stackoverflow home page.
  2. Type into the search box:


  3. Press enter

  4. Scroll down to the bottom of the page.
  5. Click "Next"

The page that comes up is as though my search term was "utf26" not "utf-16"

This may have something to do with a previous search I did, for "ucs-2" I don't know.

Firefox 3.0.11, Windows XP

OK, I just performed another search and it seems to work correctly now. Marking as completed. – Kyle Cronin Jul 2 '09 at 22:49
If no one objects, I'm closing the question, as I'm pretty sure this has been resolved. – Kyle Cronin Jul 2 '09 at 23:27
@Kyle: Not resolved. I just did the OP's steps and reproduced the error. Chrome, Windows XP. – Eric Jul 2 '09 at 23:35
This is perplexing... it WAS working, and now it's not. Oh, well, reopened and rolled back. Argh. – Kyle Cronin Jul 2 '09 at 23:41
@Kyle: I'm having one of those days, too :) – Eric Jul 2 '09 at 23:44

It seems that the page boxes are incrementing.

Page 2 is utf26
Page 3 is utf36
Page 4 is utf46
