Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Use Existing reference dialog box

Steps to reproduce:

1.Open a page with VE
2.Go to Insert>Reference >Use an existing reference
3.Type a search term in the search box
4.Select a reference from the search result.
5.Now again attempt to add another existing reference

Observed Result:
When the page of existing references opens up it still keeps the search term from previous attempt and shows the search results , it should rather clear the previous search term and let user to start over.
This issue also occurs for new media adding dialog

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
