Hmm, I think this is an unfortunate result of unclear UI on the filtering.  When you type a string in there, a drop-down will show.  On the right side is the field that filter will apply to.  So if you try to filter on the word "pancake" in a field that doesn't have that value, then you will not see the results you were hoping for.

Ideally, we should have the simple text filtering do a cross-field search and show items that have that word anywhere.  Unfortunately, that's out of scope for this first release.  But we will do our best to get that in to 1.1.

For now, if you type the word in, then be sure to select the field where you want that word to exist.  Alternately, use the "Advanced filtering" to be able to check items you want.

Naoki, does it sound like this could have been the issue?
I missed utilizing the Advanced filtering search; what I did find after looking at that is that the default search field that ends up getting used is different search field that I expected.  I think that's why it caused me some confusion.

A quick search would definitely be useful.

carl: any tips on how to approach this?  I know I need to implement a cross-field search rather than by-field.  Are there packages to help do this?

Perhaps we could use http://www.elasticsearch.org/ for full-text searching.

Mass-closing remaining MozTrap bugs as WONTFIX, due to 1) the Mozilla-hosted instance being decommissioned (see https://wiki.mozilla.org/TestEngineering/Testrail), and, for now, 2) the still-up code archived at its GitHub page: https://github.com/mozilla/moztrap (we'll decide what's next for that, in the near future).

See also the history and more-detailed discussion which led us here, at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/mozilla.dev.quality/Sa75hV8Ywvk

(If you'd like, you should be able to filter these notification emails using at least the unique string of "Sa75hV8Ywvk" in the message body.

Thanks!
