When using the Mobile version of Wikipedia no search results are displayed when the search bar is used. This was originally seen on Amazon Kindle, but was reproduced using FireFox on Mac OS X.
This problem is a regression. Search worked properly in the past.
- Open https://en.m.wikipedia.org
- Key-in a search term that is known to locate many pages, such as "copper"
- Use the [Enter] key to launch the search operation.
At this point the UI displays the search competed, zero results, information.
This problem can be replicated on an old version of Firefox 3 if you need to reproduce it.
It seems that the search submit button is wrapped in a link so the search doesn't submit on certain browsers and instead follows the link.
We should remove the link as it should not be necessary. Submitting the form does the same thing.
