Description

This is the bug for implementing instant search. This will involve setting up all the required JS event handling and creating the required templates so that the instant search results look like the regular search results page.

Hi Wayne,

Instant search displays search results are you're typing into the search bar without having to press "enter". This is supposed to help users find results faster and more easily because they'd immediately see if their search query yields the results they want. They'd be able to adjust their search terms without having to press "enter" and waiting to see the results each time.

Here are the bugs we found during user testing on the dev site:

1. The sidebar floats up and pushes the instant search results down. See screenshot: http://people.mozilla.org/~jsavage/instantsearch.png

2. For one user, instant search shows relevant results until she hits enter...then the page shows different results.

I'll send the videos to Rehan directly for the users' privacy. Please let me know if I need to do anything else.
Other than these bugs and our comments in the pull request, are we happy with Instant Search? Can we go to production as soon as that is fixed?

Yes, we have positive feedback from users otherwise, so I'm good with moving forward to production.

This is ready to land this sprint.
