Panorama should use the same matching algorithms as the AwesomeBar, matching on page title, URL, etc.
Panorama search currently does match on title and URL - see bug 593905. There are issues where tabs can be selected seemingly at random if you use broad search terms such as 'com'. See bug 623649.

Are you also asking for the awesome bar ability for the search to be restricted to only those tabs that are bookmarked or tagged, using qualifiers like * and +?

Also part of this, matching on partial words with space in between. "fo ba" should match "foo bar".
Panorama has been removed from Firefox 45, currently in Beta and scheduled for release on March 7th. As such, I'm closing all existing Panorama bugs.

If you are still using Panorama, you will see a deprecation message in Firefox 44, and when 45 is released your tab group data will be migrated to bookmarks, with a folder for each group. There are also a few addons offering similar functionality.

See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tab-groups-removal for more info.

We're removing Panorama because it has extremely low usage (about 0.01% of users), and has a large number of bugs and usability issues. The cost of fixing all those issues is far too high to justify, and so we'll instead be focusing our time and energy on improving other parts of Firefox.
