Search autocompletion cannot handle right clicks

Right-clicking a suggested search result (e.g. to open it in a new tab) causes the modal to get stuck. Neither clicking into the search box nor clicking outside the modal will make it disappear.

Recovery: Focus the search box and hit esc. Anything else (focusing the search field and clicking outside, focusing the search field and changing the search term, then clicking outside) won’t work.
