The field can be added as search engine.

Expected result:
Just search boxes can be added as search engines.

Performing a search using Gmail search engine, will display the searched word in the email field.
Can not add or as search engines via Menu-> Page -> Add a Search Engine - the option is disabled.
What's the field detection code like if any? Perhaps this can be mentored as a paper-cut bug.
This is also ( and still)  reproducible with other non search fields ( go to and add departure/destination/wizzcode fields as search engines - make a search - error displayed)
