If one enters “bug bug bug” into the location bar, they probably mean it.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Have the Bugzilla@Mozilla main page, search page(s), bug pages, http://quality.mozilla.org/events/bug-days etc in places.
2. Enter “bug” in the location bar. Wait for the dropdown.
3. Append “ bug” to that. Wait for the drop down to update.
4. Repeat step 3 any number of times.

Actual results:
Steps 3 and 4 do not affect the order or the set of results. “bug” and “bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug bug” are identical.


Expected results:
3. The results are not affected, because all of the pages contain the word “bug” both in their URL and title, so at least twice.
4. Either the list is narrowed down to the places that contain the word “bug” at least as many times as the location bar does, or such results appear higher in the list.

What would you expect for "bug ug g" ?

Any place where there are:
1. At least one instance of “bug”.
2. At least one instance of “ug” outside of that instance of “bug”.
3. At least one instance of “g” outside of those two instances.
This will not block the final release of Firefox 3.
