Searching for GetNamespaceURI via the front page on b.m.o doesn't include https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=337481 in its list, which is really rather unfortunate.

GetNamespaceURI appears in the summary, but the front-page search (and the "find a specific bug" search) only look for strings in the comments.  A boolean search that includes both summary and comments would work better.

  No, we include the summary in the fulltext search.

  This may actually be a MySQL bug that you're running into. It's possible that it doesn't consider nsNodeInfo::GetNamespaceURI as two separate words. Of course, I can't search effectively for that as one word, since I think *Bugzilla* splits it into two words when parsing it for the fulltext search.
Severity: major → normal
(You don't think that bugzilla failing to return bugs with such words in the summary, for its recommended "relevance" search, is major?  OK!)
