This situations happens frequently when I am writing an answer. While typing, I remember an old answer that covered some further related aspects. So I would like to find the relevant link. How do I do this?
I cannot enter the top-right searchbox directly for I am editing an answer. Or at least, the currently written answer might get lost (yes, I know it is saved automatically, but will I really find my way back to the link?).
I could open the link [Questions] in a new window or a new tab (I do right-click then select from a menu for that), but then I lose my tag in the search box. Also, I then get a list of 4M+ questions that are entirely unrelated and confuse me.
Every time I am in this situation I feel entirely shackled. Am I missing some obvious point?
What I would like to propose is a tiny link to the right of the searchbox. Then I could right-click there, and get the searchbox (with the principal tag) in a new window. Or maybe not a direct link, but when right-clicking the searchbox I'd get the option to open another window/tab with the search.
((It has been already proposed to have a key bound to this: This is a bit different in that it retains the original tags, and that it uses the same action one uses to open a new window))
This is certainly only of interest to people who write answers that link to other answers, I know, I know that is 0.000something% of all answers... But maybe this might also increase better researched answers.
