Bug Description

Current situation:

1) Search for a scope in app store (for example "Cinema").
2) Install it
3) After installation, you have two buttons: Uninstall and Search.
4) Tap Search.

Instead of being taken to the scope, you get taken to a nested installation screen. If installing it for 2nd time from there, Search button doesn't do anything after 2nd install.


"Search" button should take you directly to the scope you just installed.

Also "Search" doesn't sound like a clear word for opening the scope, maybe consider "Open" instead?

what should happen when tapping open/search? any animation?
what should happen when tapping back from the new opened scope? going back to store or dash?

This is a regression. I don't know why there is an ubuntu-ux task for this exactly. The behavior used to be correct for this flow.

1) From the store scope's preview of an installed scope, tapping "Search" should open the scope with the search URL that is attached to the button (this does actually happen, but for some reason the uninstalled preview is requested on top of the scope as if it's a preview for a result there, tapping the "<" back arrow will actually take you to the newly installed scope from here).

2) Tapping back from the search in the new scope should return to the installed preview page of the click store scope (the place where the search was opened from).

Are you sure case 1) worked before? We should try and bisect when it broke, then.

Point 2) never worked for sure, we never had more than one non-favourited scope open at the same time, which would be required to have the store scope and another scope on top of that.

I was pretty sure 1) worked at some point. but I don't know when it might have broken. Maybe I'm just misremembering that, or am remembering correctly and just got lucky to have it work. Maybe 2) never worked either.

But from a user perspective, the description is how I would expect the experience to be, and it feels obvious to me.
