FogBugz Search Plugin for Firox/Netscape

I recently installed the plugin that allows you to search fogbugz cases from the quick search feature in Firefox.  I was wondering how to set it up to also search closed cases.

Currently the fogbugz.src code looks something like this:

        # FogBugz search plugin
        # Copyright Fog Creek Software, Inc. 2005
        #
        <search
            version="7.1"
            name="FogBugz"
            description="FogBugz Search"
            action="http://ourServer/FogBugz/default.asp"
            searchForm="http://ourServer/FogBugz/default.asp?pre=preMultiSearch&pg=pgList&search=2&searchFor="
            method="GET"
        >
        <input name="sourceid" value="Mozilla-search">
        <input name="pre" value="preMultiSearch">
        <input name="pg" value="pgList">
        <input name="search" value="2">
        <input name="searchFor" user>
        <interpret
            resultListStart=""
            resultListEnd=""
            resultItemStart=""
            resultItemEnd=""
        >
        <browser
            update="http://ourServer/FogBugz/default.asp?pg=pgDownload&pgType=pgFireFoxSearch&x=/fogbugz.src"
            updateIcon="http://ourServer/FogBugz/images/fogbugz.png"
            updateCheckDays="3"
            >
        </search>

Just add bAlsoSearchClosedBugs=ON to the argument list in the search url...

Well I tried that I couldn't get it to work that way.  I just added reference to that input and set the value to ON.  It now works and looks something like this:

        # FogBugz search plugin
        # Copyright Fog Creek Software, Inc. 2005
        #
        <search
            version="7.1"
            name="FogBugz"

            action="http://ourServer/FogBugz/default.asp"
            searchForm="http://ourServer/FogBugz/default.asp?pre=preMultiSearch&pg=pgList&search=2&searchFor="
            method="GET"
        >
        <input name="sourceid" value="Mozilla-search">
        <input name="pre" value="preMultiSearch">
        <input name="pg" value="pgList">
        <input name="search" value="2">
        <input name="searchFor" user>
        <input name="bAlsoSearchClosedBugs" value="ON">
        <interpret
            resultListStart=""
            resultListEnd=""
            resultItemStart=""
            resultItemEnd=""
        >
        <browser

            updateIcon="http://ourServer/FogBugz/images/fogbugz.png"
            updateCheckDays="3"
            >
        </search>

Oh and just further reference for anyone who has the same issue.  I found that if you want to set the default settings when the Search Engine plugin is installed, the default settings can be changed in cFirefox.asp.

If you have already installed the Search Engine plugin and you want to reinstall it with the new default settings you created, you will have to manually delete the fogbugz.src file from ..program files/mozilla firefox/searchplugins folder before you can reinstall it.
