I think you're making this more complicated than you need to.
assuming you're using the advanced search. Select "Fedora" in the
Classification list, select "Fedora" in the Product list,
then if you
Forgot that, but, doing it didn't change the problem....
want to search in specific packages, pick the Components you want.
you can put your search terms in the search box and go.
What I wish is to limit the search to bugs filed against F25 or F26, so I goto
the "Version:" select list only to find it contains approximately 2,053
selections from which to choose (I saved https://bugzilla.redhat.com/query.cgi
to disk and found the options to begin on line 1268 and end on line 5273). That
many selections are totally unwieldy in a box that shows only 6 selections at a
time, particularly since that list contains a mixture of alpha-numeric and
numbers-only selections of unknown sort state (A=a, B=b, etc., or not) and I
don't know whether I'm looking for 26, F26 or f26.
I've been doing Bugzilla searches since registering on bugzilla.mozilla.org
is consistently the most difficult BZ installation I
routinely need to use, mainly because of huge "select" lists,
"Product" and "Component" in particular.

I have no idea what you're asking here. Can you explain in more
Bug 1394862's status is CLOSED ERRATA. According to
"1.plural of erratum.
2.a list of errors and their corrections inserted, usually on a separate page or
slip of paper, in a book or other publication; corrigenda."
Knowing that definition, I expect a web search to find me a list describing
something about the state of whatever package, applicable to the not yet
released Fedora 26, contains a fix for that bug, but searching found me no such
states a bug with
status ERRATA has a fix that "is available", but I suspect that for this bug
many others, such status has been applied prematurely/prospectively, confirming
propriety of some kind of available status list.
