it's a good thing to look for existing bugs. but, in doubt, it's better to submit than to have the devs ignore it...

well, it should  be possible to look by OS. if a bug is platform specific, most of the time this field is field. the other ones are mostly not.

when i look for bugs i mostly just put one or two well chosen keywords in the search field and than manually skim through the few dozen (or less result) to see if there are any matching

in my experience, most search "engines" fail at their job (exceptions are google, os x file search, windows file search).

i guess that for now the approach is more or less: each one tries to give his best and we try no to bring to much complexity in the workflow...

i hope that i could give you some useful answers...

have a nice start to the week
