The only way to search in newsgroups is searching "on the newsserver". There is 
currently no way to just search in the headers that you downloaded.
This is a problem since not all newsservers allow searching, fx like 
msnews.microsoft.com
Outlook Express lets the user search in the headers that you downloaded, which 
also must be much faster.
Could Mozilla also support this. Perhaps by a checkbox that says: "Search on 
server" or "Search in downloaded headers"
.

Isn't this a dup? We're not going to do this for 6.0.

Just getting off my radar for now by VERIFYING this as LATER.
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
LATER is depreciated; please use FUTURE.
Status: VERIFIED → REOPENED
Resolution: LATER → ---
Target Milestone: --- → Future
since we may be doing offline in the next release, we should consider this, and
not future/later it.

I didn't mark it LATER, just changed it from RESOLVED to VERIFIED.  But yeah, we
need this on our radar in the long term.
marking nsbeta1-.  news isn't as high of a priority in this release.

Offline news search is working now with non-ascii data.Henrik, would you please
report here if you still have a problem? Thanks.
so, Henrik, the trick to do here is to go into the offline state before doing
your news search. Not as direct as having a checkbox, but it's a trick people
used in 4.x
this seems to work. I switched to offline and was able to search for subject.
I'll open a new bug on the ability to specify to search online/offline in the 
search dialog.

while the workaround works, seems like we eventually want to fix this
(eventually) with some UI, no? 
Status: RESOLVED → REOPENED
Resolution: FIXED → ---
Then this bug should belong to someone doing UI and not me.

I've opened bug 83968 for the on/off line search
Okay, then I can verify this one.  Thanks for doing that, Henrik.
