The Expression field uses regular expressions. If your search phrase includes any of the ^, [, ., $, {, *, (, \, +, ), |, ?, <, > characters and you don't want them to be processed as part of the expression, you need to "escape" the character by preceding it with a backslash. For example, if your expression was application/epub+zip this would need to be written as application/epub\+zip otherwise the + character would have a special meaning and no matches would be made.
