The autocomplete for the main search bar on Special:Search doesn't work as users expect
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Typing a term into the box, such as 'search<enter>' both auto-fills the search box with the first suggestion (Web crawler in this case) it also does not perform the search until the user presses enter a second time.

I think the changes to it should be reverted and refined before being sent back into production.
