- browse by archival descriptions
- choose an institutional facet
- clear the facet by clicking on the "x" below the number of results
- no results found
If you start with a keyword search rather than a browse, this works correctly.

Confirmed in 2x dev site - note that if you select "All" again in the facet, it works as well - the problem is the orange filter tag at the top of the results. When it is removed, all search results disappear.

The parameters do seem to be retained - for example try faceting by place and level of description as well as institution, then removing the institutional facet. The URL is e.g.:
when it should be
So the feature assumes that you're starting with a general search.

Thinking more about this feature, I got to wondering why there is a separate block to remove an institutional facet, but not the other facets.
With hoped for improvements in facets generally as well as upcoming work on the institutional filter (#3897), would hiding this filter tag for now rather than fixing it make sense? Was this added based on a specific requirement or something?

It wasn't added based on a specific requirement, but since it's been fixed, I think we should leave it in - might be interesting to see what users think as more people test AtoM 2.0. It could be possible in the future to create a sort of "your filters" area at the top of the results that would show all filters with these kind of tags, giving users a better visual cue as to what filters have been applied than just the facet headings - but it might also not be necessary. I find it nice when arriving on this page from an institution (similarly, with the "browse all descriptions" link that appears after a quick search in the treeview), but if other users find it unecessary/excessive, we can always consider removing it. Consider it a potential feature preview for now ;)
