The new enlarge-search-on-focus functionality occasionally breaks as thus when changing tabs.


Steps for repro:

  • Focus tab
  • Switch to another tab
  • Switch back

Reproduced in Chrome & FF 5, norepro in Safari, but the issue does seem somewhat sporadic - sometimes the header will hide like it should when refocusing the window.

  • I cannot reproduce with Chrome 13 or FF8. – Kimi Aug 8 '11 at 18:23
  • Firefox 8? That's ridiculous. What happened to versions 6 and 7? It would be nice if that team would go back to making a stable browser, rather than ticking up the version number. I can't repro this on Chrome either. When you re-focus the tab, the search box re-adjusts itself after a brief moment. – Cody Gray Aug 8 '11 at 19:12

A partial work-around will be pushed tonight. It's not pretty, since most browsers will fire element focus loss events when the window/tab loses focus.
