#1860: Broken paging for a certain plugin search query

     Type:  defect            |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal            |  Milestone:
Component:  Plugin Directory  |   Keywords:
 1. Go to https://wordpress.org/plugins/.
 2. Search for "plugin version". 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"
 error 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.
