STR:

* Go into Preferences
* Search for "cert"

See only various certificate-related preferences, with the letters "cert" highlighted in bright yellow. So far, so good, although the yellow is a bit bright.

* Click "View Certificates" 
* Interact with the certificate window

The letters "cert" remain highlighted in this window in all occurrences. This seems both ugly and overkill. I've found the pref I wanted - there's no need for the highlight any more.

Possible fixes:

* Opening a preferences sub-dialog should clear the search
* Opening a preferences sub-dialog should hide the search highlighting until it's closed again

This is with Nightly 57.0a1 (2017-08-20) (64-bit).
