The latest Firefox I was referring to (in the previous posts) is on Linux.
I just downloaded 3.6.10 from mozilla.com (I usually stick to Debian's package, currently 3.5.12) and caret browsing is off by default there as well.

I just created a thread titled "Best data structure for holding unknown number of characters"

and the following tags were automatically generated:
* characters
* data
* holding
* number
* structure
* unknown

I found it to be senseless !! This method will again clutter the tag list as before ! Of course I did delete the meaningless tags, but I don't think most newbies and new members would bother to even notice that and then modify it.

The auto-tagging is something we've been testing on a limited number of threads. I'd agree that the results have been less than impressive. I'm going to disable this feature so we can re-evaluate it for the time being.

and I tagged that thread and an another thread of mine (on a similar issue) with the label : "text editor", (note the space in the words).

Then I "searched tags" with the text "texteditor" (no space in between)!! and I saw the message "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms."

Now there is a *space* issue !! I wonder if it is worth tackling.

Both threads are tagged, as expected, with "text editor":

You didn't understand what I said !

Now when I search with "texteditor" with no space in between, nothing gets shown. It can happen vice versa too.

Why would a search for "texteditor" return a thread tagged "text editor"?

I could have created a tag like "texteditor" not knowing that they should be separated by space while creating tags and then if someone searched "text editor", he would have got nothing.

I'm still not understanding what you're trying to suggest. The two strings are different, and a search for one does not and should not return results for the other. The tag search has autocomplete, so once you start typing the word text, the correct result would appear anyway, FWIW.

I am not able to see the "Auto-completion feature" in "Search Tags". I typed "fire" and was expecting a drop down list showing "firefox" but nothing appeared.

Is there some other kind of auto completion feature you are referring to ?

and secondly you think it makes sense that the following tags result in DIFFERENT threads and you expect the user to search by all the 4 tags to see all the related threads ?
  • text <one space> editor
  • text <two spaces> editor
  • text-editor
  • texteditor

It's possible we'll implement some kind of tag synonym feature in the future, but we have no definitive plans at this time. The auto-complete feature is available on the main tag search page: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/tags/
