Search instead for "failfield 3"
Same for +"failfield 3" (not surprising, given how they removed the + operator).
Why does it suggest r in place of l? Is there a keyboard layout where those two letters are located next to each other?
Looking at the URL, it appends &nfpr=1 to the correct query.
The + operator has been replaced. To search for an exact word or phrase, use double quotation marks. ... By putting double quotes around a single word, you are telling Google to match that word precisely as you typed it.
As you can see, Google's own documentation is incorrect, given results above.
Further, people are saying that "" searches won't produce same results at + before but I can't verify this...
etc, there's ton more of complaint threads about same issue if you can bother to look.
You can look at the above topics to find that the problems are even worse in non-US languages, where it was often necessary to use + (exact match) to get the right result.
BING appears to now have the edge over Google having copied these features. I'll keep closer watch on whether Bing has caught up on the actual results, particularly prioritizing various databases results to top of the results. (Which is really REALLY important, since the search of those databases, forums etc from their own page is really slow or otherwise useless)
