Tags are words and acronyms surrounded by [brackets] used in the title or summary of a bugzilla report. The tags make it faster to search for related bugs or to create queries for bugs involving a specific component. Multiple tags can be added to a bug report. When searching for tags, do not use case sensitive search as different users have used different casing.
