Mozilla internal documentation should never show-up by default.

For example: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/search?q=filter

This should show CSS, HTML and JS results, not /Mozilla/Tech/XUL/Template_Guide/Filtering.

Maybe a checkbox "includes mozilla internal documentation", that is off by default.
I don't agree with this. However, I do think that if you have two pages that have the same title, but one is in the /Web subtree and the other is not, the one under /Web should be listed first. That would ensure that, for instance, HTML elements with the same name as a XUL element would be listed first.j

That would work for me.
