    Click here to read earlier answers to this question.

    I found these by clicking on Advanced Search and entering First/firstly in the search box.

    Hello, samya.barham.
    Can you see/find "Advanced Search" on this page?

    I'm not sure what happened there, but if you click on the word "here" in Rover's post, it does indeed take you to a page that says "Sorry, no matches". To test out the system, I have now tried to do the same thing. Try to click HERE and see what happens.

    EDIT: OK, I have tested that link and it takes me to the results page for "first/firstly" from the Advanced Search function.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    I'm afraid your link doesn't work for me, either.

    That is very strange. I just checked it and it worked again for me. If the links aren't working then the OP needs to:

    1. Click on the words "Advanced Search" at the top right-hand corner of this page.
    2. Enter "first/firstly" in the Keyword(s) box and click Search Now.

    It doesn't work any more for me. How strange. It worked for at least 15 minutes for me after I posted it, yet not now. That's an odd glitch.

    It worked for me just now.

    Things will improve when we get Google Custom Search back.
