Attempting to click the "Download ZIP" button on the search screen throws the following error:
Exception: Exception caught: Must call edit() first
This is caused by a missed check for changes performed in 1.8 to fix script timeouts in FF24.
Workaround: Click the "Tags" tab before clicking "Download ZIP"
Fixed in 1.9-SNAPSHOT build 201407181407
The download handler now includes the hasTagsBeenInitialised() check, before attempting to flush the tags editor.
Note: This version is currently live on the test/development server.
Tested downloading the zip and cvs directly from the field search screen, after selecting some tags, and after loading a search. All worked ok.
My mistake - loading a filter and then using the download zip or csv buttons results in all topics being downloaded. It seems like the tags are not included in the query until the tags tab has been clicked.
To replicate, load a saved search filter and then click "Download Topic ZIP". You'll get all topics.
If you then click the tags tab and click "Download Topic ZIP", you'll get the expected results.

Clicking the "Load" filter button will now load the search tags as well (assuming the filter has tags), which means that it can then be used when downloading the zip or searching.
Note: You may get the script timeouts in FF24 or lower, however that has to do with BZ#1116739.
This version has been deployed to the test/development server.
