Bug: Cannot submit search form before suggestions are loaded

Steps:

  • Focus search box and enter search phrase (e.g. “test”), followed by hitting enter

Expected result:

  • After pressing enter I am redirected to the search result page.

Actual result:

  • Pressing enter before suggestions start loading: no effect
  • Pressing enter while suggestions load: closes suggestions, second enter inputs have no effect

Related (not sure if this is intentional): If the search box has focus the suggestions will close if the tab loses focus. Refocusing the tab will reload the suggestions.

I recently filed an issue for the first problem, and I’ve filed a new issue for the second. Thanks for the report.
