I wanted to input a bug for thunerbird.
I search first to see if my bug has soon been declared.

I search "junck trash" and I got 200 results, I search "junck AND trash" and I
get too 200 results.
Particularly the result incudes bug 249605 which does not contain "trash" word.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enter in bugzilla thunderbird. in 1rst step search "junk trash"
2.See results, they include bug 249605
3.Enter bug 249605, search "trash". It is not found.

Actual Results:  
there are too many results to correctly check that the bug soon exist, so I will
declare it "hoping" it is not a duplicate.

Expected Results:  
Provide a way to get get "junk AND trash", maybe it is a bug of documentation,
not indicating how to do the search.
It is important to not discourage good wills who want to do not waste the time
of developpers by signaling duplicate bugs.

I've had this problem too (under Linux, so it's not specific to Windows 2000). 
It either prevents me from submitting bug reports or causes me to submit
duplicate reports, as I'm not willing to sift through hundreds of results to
check for duplicates.
Reassigning bugs that I'm not actively working on to the default component owner
in order to try to make some sanity out of my personal buglist.  This doesn't
mean the bug isn't being dealt with, just that I'm not the one doing it.  If you
are dealing with this bug, please assign it to yourself.
