This is an old problem - always existed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Focus on any newsgroup message 2. Click Tools | Search messages 3. Fill an arbitrary search criteria 4. Click Search Actual Results: A window appears: Alert A News (NNTP) error occurred: Syntax error or bad command Expected Results: Should have found messages according to the search criteria or informed there are none.
See bug 57630. This seems to be a server problem. Do other news reader programs work for the server you are trying?
Summary: Bug remains in 1.4a → Cannot search NNTP messages
See also bug 92746. Netscape 4 searched in the local cache. Mozilla tries to search on the server-side, but not all servcers support that.
Comment on attachment 121866 [details] Ethereal capture (LIBPCAP format, but with .TXT extension) Tried to search newsgroup messages with Outlook Express and it works.
Some NNTP servers do not support searching commands. The fact that you can't search is because mozilla isn't searching local cache headers, which is bug 92746 *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 92746 ***
