Disable native OpenSearch suggestions in Wikibase wikis
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Reproduce:

  1. Open a page (preferably an Wikibase entity page)
  2. Refresh the page
  3. Quickly put some text to Wikidata search box, like this: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Element_search_in_Wikidata_(Catalan).png, before the JavaScript is loaded (in entity pages, once JavaScript is loaded the edit statement buttons are shown)

Result:

The native OpenSearch suggestions is shown, overlapping the Wikibase search box.

Expected:

The native search box should be disabled.

Note:

T190454#4092077 proposed to integrate the Wikibase search box to the native search box.

Removing Discovery-Search as this is purely UI related. As noted in the description (T190454#4092077) the ultimate goal would be to unify all these autocomplete APIs.
