Bug Description

Originally filed as part of https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1292632. Marking as confirmed since it was previously reported by another person.

When doing a search in the TPAC and using a format filter (eg. Searching using the All Books filter) you get a result list that only includes books (correct). However, if you choose 'Group Formats and Editions', the metarecord browse shows all format types, and when you click though to the individual record browse list, you see all records not just those in the all books filter.

The Group Formats and editions box should honour whatever search filters have been applied to the search.

Although this bug focused on format filters, I wanted to make a note that the Grouped Record results page also ignores most other filters available on the search results page, including audience, bib level, item type, language, copy location, publication year, etc.

The only limiter that appears to work on this page is the Search Library limiter.

I believe the same code will fix these. They are all related. We have turned on group formats by default in our OPAC and we are impacted by these. I don't have an ETA, but I do have some code worked out.
