Advanced Search Is Broken

In firefox, I get nothing but “Validation Errors” with no reasonable description of what I have done wrong…this for things as simple as a “all words” search or an exact phrase plus user name.

Regarding username, I have not once been able to get a set of search results that show me only those posts by the specified username.

The date ranges don’t seem to work (and/or require additional description/documentation so that they can be used correctly)

This is one of the most important features of the archived forums and at this point I can’t seem to make it work in IE or Firefox in any useful manner.

I am willing to contribute time and programming resources to make it better!
