I don't know if this browser dependent.  The problem described occurs in Firefox-48.0 and Seamonkey-2.33.1.  It does work correctly(?) in Google Chrome 49.0.2623.112 m but Chrome does not remember what was typed when you back up.  This box has Vista Home edition and Chrome is no long updated here.
==================
Bring up any MDN page,e.g., 'https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Guide'.

Click on the Search field and enter, for instance, 'const'.

Type RETURN.

Click "Back".  You don't need to look at any of the pages found.

The Search field has 'const' highlighted.  If you click on the field to edit it, it is closed, is grayed out and is totally unresponsive.  Kind of frustrating.

It's probably something that I'm (not) doing.

Confirmed in Firefox 48. It looks like we disable forms on submit, and going back in history doesn't un-disable it in Firefox:
