 When trying to use the primary search box in the header of mythweb pages,
 search results will only return when clicking the "search" button next to
 the search text field.

 If a user enters data in the textbox, and simply hits the "enter" key
 while the cursor is still in the search textbox, then the user is
 redirected to the search page, with no results and nothing searched for.

 This has been going on for many years and releases.

 Kormoc mentioned in IRC that this may be due to a design decision many
 years ago designed to "eat enters to prevent folks from accidentally
 searching".  I believe that may not be the desired intention anymore since
 the user experience is very confusing.  It took me a long time to know
 that I could "work-around" this issue by using the mouse and clicking
 search instead of hitting enter.  Before I realized that, I just thought I
 always had to navigate to the search page first, add a string, then click
