Is this a regression or a new thing? (ie. what is the behaviour like on production?)

It's a regression. This is what I see in production:

@dr0ptp4kt I've removed the devices to test on since this is a regression from T138286 which lists those already.

Further to my review of 298871: Calculate absolute position of clear button:

Browser: Safari (9.1.1)
OS: 10.11.5

N.B. that I couldn't +2 this even if I wanted to as I don't have access to a Windows Phone 8.1 emulator. Who has a BrowserStack account?

@phuedx, I do. I'll forward my credentials to your email.

As I noted during my review of the change, I tested it in the following browsers:

  • Chrome (51.0.2704.103)
  • Firefox (47.0.1)
  • Safari (9.1.1)
  • IE11 on Lumia 930/Windows Phone 8.1
  • IE9 on Windows 7
  • IE10 on Windows 7

It's unclear to me if it's this patch or if it's another patch, but now has a couple of oddities.

I'm marking this task as resolved given @phuedx's testing on the Lumia (and my verification in Safari for iOS 9 phone plus Chrome for Android 5 phone and tablet), but here they are for reference:

In Opera Mini, prior to entering the search bar at all, the magnifying glass is now appearing (good), but it's mashed into the placeholder text (similar to how the search results page was showing up).

On Windows Phone 7.5 IE, the magnifying glass is now appearing (good), but it's squished. That's both prior to search and while in the midst of searching.

I created T140487 as it came up on another patchset review. Can you confirm that Windows 7 phone runs IE9?

@dr0ptp4kt this needs story points. Who did the task?

@MBinder_WMF this was a regression based on the planned sprint work of the pointed T138286 thus it shouldn't be pointed.
