I understand your frustration when things don't work as expected, but 
try to be friendly...

I've use indexed_search on quite a few sites and the page browser works 
in those installations.
The href="#" is normal and is there because the URL would get too long 
for most people and is quite ugly. The solution which is used for many 
years is that there is an onclick= attribute which basically sets a few 
fields in a (hidden) form and submits that (there is no other way to 
have a link do a POST).

Do you have Javascript functionality which interferes with such onClick 
events? Is the form present in the output on your site?

In what ways is indexed_search not conform CSS and HTML rules? Have you 
searched for bug reports for this?

The label "long term support" is because there will be bugfix releases 
for 4.5 for a longer period than usual. This was done because 4.6 would 
no longer have support for IE6 in the backend and there were some users 
who still needed to use IE6. So the support period was extended until 
sprint 2014 when Microsoft will officially drop support for IE6.

The page browser works out-of-the-box for most people. I suspect that 
the problematic site has some modifications (templates, Javascript) 
which somehow interfere.

If you can provide a URL to the frontend of the problematic site others 
in this list can check if there are problems in the output. Without that 
it will be a guessing game which rarely leads to results.

Kind regards / met vriendelijke groet,
