Problem with order by in FireFox search plugin

I have modified my FireFox search plugin like so:
<os:Url type="text/html" method="GET" template="https://XXXXXXXX/default.asp?pre=preMultiSearch&amp;pg=pgList&amp;pgBack=pgSearch&amp;search=2&amp;searchFor={searchTerms}+OrderBy%3ALastEdited">

The only change is the appended orderby clause at the end.  This works really well in most cases, as I always want to see the most recent cases first.  However, there is one case in which it does not work -- entering a case number by itself in the FireFox search field sometimes indicates no cases found.  I have to retype the case number in the FogBugz search field itself to pull it up.  Is this something you'd consider looking into, even though I've tinkered with the provided search plugin?  Thanks!

Not even a "hey that's a really cool idea but you're on your own" reply?

Sorry, we did open a case, but forgot to reply here.  For now, this has to go to backlog due to other pressing dev needs.

If you're ever feeling ignored by us (or just lonely) don't hesitate to contact us by phone or email.  Our discussion board turnaround isn't always as bulletproof as email replies.

Thanks Rich.  I am able to work around the problem by specifying case:xxxx in the FireFox search box where xxxx is a case number.
