Faster Quicksearches

Another guest post from Stefan Arentz:

“If you do a lot of quick searches to find bugs by summary and you don’t care about also looking into the comments of those bugs, flip the “Include comments when performing quick searches (slower)” to NO in your preferences.

A search for ‘radio antenna’ just went down from 30+ seconds to just a few seconds.”



  1. WebKit allows spiders to index bugs.webkit.org, making any kind of search must faster by deferring to one’s favorite search engine. This is something the Mozilla project could consider as well.

  2. You can also turn off comment searching on a query by query basis by including ‘–comment’ (no quotes) in your quicksearch string. That way you can leave your user preference turned on if you like. It also works the opposite by using ‘++comment’.
