See bug 234464 for the context of this bug. Google (see http://www.google.com/help/refinesearch.html ): =========================================================== * "+" Searches If a common word (a possible stopword) is essential for your search, you can include it by putting a "+" sign in front of it. Another method for doing this is conducting a phrase search, which simply means putting quotation marks around 2 or more words. Common words in a phrase search (e.g., "where are you") are included in the search. * "~" Searches You may want to search not only for a particular keyword, but also for its synonyms. Indicate a search for both by placing the tilde sign ("~") immediately in front of the keyword. * Phrase Searches Search for complete phrases by enclosing them in quotation marks. Words enclosed in double quotes ("like this") will appear together in all results exactly as you have entered them. Quicksearch (see http://www.squarefree.com/bugzilla/quicksearch-help.html ): ============================================================================ * "+" Searches Quicksearch recognizes essential words marked with the "+" prefix, too. In the Quicksearch context, where additional fields besides the summary are included in the search by default, this is interpreted as "I want this string to occur in the summary, and I don't care about the other fields." Thus +foo and summary:foo are equivalent queries. * "~" Searches Quicksearch does not support this; for including synonyms in a search, a thesaurus would be required. (See bug 66084 for the idea of building one.) * Phrase Searches Quicksearch uses double quotes ("like this") to treat all enclosed characters as if they were ordinary alphanumeric characters. This includes space (" "), colon (":"), comma (","), minus ("-"), plus ("+"), and all other characters that haven't been mentioned yet. In effect, this can be used to emulate Google-style phrase searches. (Currently there is no way to escape the '"' character itself.)
