Russ, Family Book Expanded Directory Search Still Not Working Properly

I believe that Diane is referring to the issue with the Expanded Directory search (Family Books/1850 Census. It is the one search that USED to filter results and produce viable information, instead of tons of useless results

Until recently, we were able to enter more than one word(s)and receive accurate results. Now, more than one key word hangs the search. (Better than Thursday, when search was not working at all.)

In addition, we are no longer able to search individual books. Example:
http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/_glc_/3150/3150_226.html

Click on Search Book
Submit a Search
All books say: Please enter a Query

Why does Genealogy.com ruin the best search engine available? In fact, all the databases should have been set up to provide the type of filtered results previously available with the Expanded Directory Search.
