I am testing the http://careers.stackoverflow.com/?bmidr=1bbbb website

I have found a issue on the site with searching. When I have entered very long values in the what and where textboxes, you end up at a blank screen

See these screenshots:

Search Page

Result Page

I know the URL is very long, but you need to check for this and display some message to the users if they enter wrong values in the search textbox.

This is a specific example of the more general bug you described in the other post; solving that will solve this one. –  Martijn Pieters Apr 17 at 14:01
    
Technically different code bases, different teams. I reopened the question. –  Juice Apr 17 at 17:51

You should now see an error page when you access an URL which is very long.

Since we don't have a specific error message for this (very sparse) error, it will show a "Page not found" error.

Thank you for the report !

You forgot to remove the status-reproduced tag from the question. :-) –  Shadow Wizard May 22 at 9:10
