User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; InfoPath.1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727) Build Identifier: On the main page the search field contains the text "Enter a bug # or some search terms". When the field is entered this text is not automatically cleared. Reproducible: Always Actual Results: Start the main page in 3.4 RC1, click on the search field and enter some data. Expected Results: Search field should be empty after clicking the field
Only search field in the header isn't working. Search Field in the footer works fine.
The problem only affects IE 6 and IE 7. All other browsers (IE 8, Firefox, Opera, Safari and Google Chrome) are working correctly. For some reason the "Enter a bug # or some search terms" text appears in the search field in the header instead of the main search field in the middle of index.cgi. I checked, and the login + password fields are not affected by this problem.

Summary: Search field on mainpage in 3.4RC1 not empty automatically when entering the field → The search field on index.cgi is not cleared automatically when entering the field (IE 7 and older only)
Target Milestone: --- → Bugzilla 3.4
Version: unspecified → 3.3.4
IE 6 and IE 7 behave incorrectly, per http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms536437%28VS.85%29.aspx "Internet Explorer 8 and later. In IE8 mode, getElementById performs a case-sensitive match on the ID attribute only. In IE7 mode and previous modes, this method performs a case-insensitive match on both the ID and NAME attributes, which might produce unexpected results." As all search fields have the same name (name="quicksearch"), IE 6 and IE 7 choose the first search field they find, i.e. the one in the header. They of course violate the W3C spec: http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2-Core/core.html#ID-getElBId
Created attachment 388897 [details] [diff] [review] patch, v1 The fix is trivial: just use another ID which doesn't match any name attribute. While I was on it, I also remove the quicksearch_help_text class which has nothing to do with the Account icon.

Comment on attachment 388897 [details] [diff] [review] patch, v1 looks good passing it to mkanat for 2nd look. Make sure to apply to head and to branch!
By the way, I think that if a full reviewer asks a half-reviewer for review, the half-reviewer doesn't have to ask another person for review. (That is, your r+ is enough, on LpSolit's patch.)
