This bug seems to highlight two issues: the missing max-width on the search suggestions dropdown table, which is dupe of bug 1186281, and an issue with the search suggestion controller that's resulting in a bad state. I believe these two issues are separate, so I can't in good conscious resolve this as a dupe. I think adding bug 1186281 as "See Also" makes sense here, so there's nothing to be done.
s/good conscious/good conscience/ of course :)
