I think @Florian wrote the patch that converted Special:Search to OOUI? @Jdforrester-WMF would probably know. @Florian, could you take a look at this?

This is actually broken in production.

Everything looks fine, until you zoom in a bit too much...

I wrote the change, yes, but this is the default behaviour of OOJsUI, as far as I can tell. What would be the expected behaviour, so I can look how we can achieve it :)

@Florian It would probably be best for the search bar to get less wide to fit the search button in, down to some minimum so that it doesn't go arbitrarily small. Does that make sense to you?
