This is not a bug, but an improvement suggestion that's very very simple-  

The Go button (that is currently only for the URL field) could be used to
initiate the search for the Fast Find field if the field is active.    

Also- If something is already typed in this field a new search could begin upon
 making a selection of which engine to search with.  (ie. type in "tennis
balls", scroll to ebay, and when the selection is made (when the mouse comes
off) an ebay search automatically begins) 

These are two almost pathetically small tweaks, but I believe it would really
help streamline the searching process.

Thanks for your time.  Keep up the awesome work.

I think it's going to be confusing. The go button is on the top "navigation"
toolbar and the find bar is at the bottom.

I've chosen the wrong terms, which has confused the message. (I wasn't talking
about the find bar)  I've done a quick mock-up to illustrate what I'm saying
much more clearly.  Go here: http://members.optushome.com.au/matbrady1/2ideas

-> Search component

I think this is already implemented as an extension.
