Move keyboard focus into the search term box when search is clicked
When I click the dark grey search button at the top of a Codidact page a new panel opens containing a search term box and a blue search button. If I start typing, nothing happens because the search term box does not have keyboard focus. I need to click in the search term box before I can type anything.
Is this by design, or could it be changed so that keyboard focus automatically switches to the search term box?
I can't think of a benefit to not changing the keyboard focus, especially as the previous keyboard focus is already lost (my typing doesn't go to the place I was previously typing, such as a draft question).
Currently I have to make 2 clicks to type a search term, this would reduce it to 1 click. That's a very small difference and doesn't save much time, so I'd expect most of the benefit of this change to be in not confusing new users.
