From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90)
BuildID:    20001103

it doesn't seem to be possible to seach all the newsgroups for their names 
(like it is in outlook express or knode on KDE for example)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. select "subscribe to newsgroups"
2. try to find all groups containing "rt" with one command
3. see for yourself

Actual Results:  when i enter a string that should be included in the name of 
the newsgroup, mozilla only takes me to a group matching the string from its 
beginning (but not including it)

Expected Results:  it should be possible to search the headers of the 
newsgroups and find every matching newsgroup listed in the window

when you enter a string in the textbox, the window should show all available 
newsgroups containing this string
if you enter a string which contains no chars "" then all of the available 
newsgroups should be listed

see how this is done in other newsreaders like
outlook express (win)
knode (unix/ kde)
or any other newsreader
