Build Identifier: RedHat bugzilla, version 3.1.4+, but applies to many older versions

In recent (< 5 years old) versions of bugzilla, the only way to set a default search (query) appears to be to check the checkbox "and remember these as my default search options" at the time of doing an advanced search.  Back in olden times (2.8), it was possible to save something as a default query (as it was then called) without actually running the query.  This can be very useful for cases in which a default query is very broad.  I like to use my default search options to pre-initialize most of the fields that are consistent.  This probably means that I'm filling in status and product but not version or component, for example.  The only way I can see to do this now is to actually make the query and then cancel it.

It would be nice if there were, in addition to a "search" button and an "and remember these as my default search options" checkbox, there was just a "don't search but remember these as my default search options" button (suitably labeled).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Not really something to reproduce -- just observe that there is no way to save default search options other than clicking "search" with the "and remember these as my default search options" option checked.
Actual Results:  
n/a -- see above
