searching mozilla forum key words
Can I search the mozilla forum for specific word inside the forum? for example searching for a key word inside a forum response.
When you use the search box at the upper right, there should be buttons above the hit list to limit your results to "Community Discussion only". Is that what you meant?Read this answer in context 👍 1

When you use the search box at the upper right, there should be buttons above the hit list to limit your results to "Community Discussion only". Is that what you meant?

I do not see any buttoms in the top right corner. Is there a specific menu?
See my screen shot
I think I found what I am looking for.
Under "contributor tools" then "advance search" then I select the "discussion forum" tab and enter my search.
I am still having trouble with the search. As an example I was trying to serch for and find FF support forum that contains "www.Pluto.tv" but I keep getting the message "We couldn't find any results for www.Pluto.tv in English. Maybe one of these articles will be helpful? "
to perform the search I go to "contributor tools"-Advance search, then select forum dicussion tab and then enter the search "www.pluto.tv" in the search field.
You can possibly use a keyword bookmark (sumo) and use that to search the forum.

There are three tabs:
- Knowledge Base => support articles
- Support Questions => this area we're posting in now
- Discussion Forums => forums for contributors to discuss the site
If you want to search for support threads, use that second category, not the third one.
Searching the support forum uses: &w=2&a=1 Searching the knowledge base uses: &w=1&a=1 Searching the discussion forum uses: &w=4&a=1&forum=1
