There is a programming error in forming the string. If you look at the string in your address bar, you will note that it has DYS459a=8, instead of DYS459_a=8. If you insert the underline, it will work right. (Use the right arrow to go to the end of the string where the two should be found.)

On the Y-DNA side, SMGF reported my DYS 459a,b as 8,10 and so did FTDNA, and I entered 8,10 in my ancestry DNA profile.
But when in ancestry I click to find SMGF matches, it looks like it converts my values and searches for matches with 10,10, so it finds a partial mismatch with my SMGF result. I looked and couldn't find anything about a conversion issue in general for 459.
