User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:53.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/53.0
Build ID: 20170320143328

Steps to reproduce:

I try to find "XML Search Engines Exporter/Importer" extension.

1. Open Add-Ons.
2. Type "Search Importer". Finded many extensions with only 1 matched word but not needed extension.
3. Type "Search Engines Importer". Same result.
4. Type "XML Search Engines Importer". Same result.

And finally type full name: "XML Search Engines Exporter/Importer". Yeah, we find it! =)

Where did these many other extensions come from? I don't need it. I guess it is substring search. But I think extension with 4 matched words should be higher than extension with 1 matched word.
