How can I get search working on this site?

I am still looking for accessibility fixes. I have sensory processing issues, and all the animation online *hurts,* so I need ways to disable animation.

If I search for accessibility, it returns results involving access to this or that, unrelated to accessibility for disabled users.

If I search for disable animation accessibility -access it still returns results involving access to this or that... What is a point of searches if the results don't involve important search terms and contain excluded terms?

Depending on which search engine you use there are some exclusion notations you can use.

Google "Similarly, if you want to exclude a word entirely, you can add a dash before it—like justin bieber -sucks " -> might also try

Bing and Yahoo "a keyword using the NOT operator."

It's worse.

It seems that the "Search Mozilla Support" bar returns results containing *any* of the search terms.

One search term is hardly ever enough to find relevant results. Multiple search terms don't narrow the results, they only add more irrelevant results.

On that note, why is advanced/functional search hidden away?
