Per bug 688011, search terms are persisted for a user- unless they view the start page, when the search terms are cleared. 1) add data to search field> search 2) click 'Desktop' or any start page link expected: search terms are persisted in the search box actual: search terms are cleared
Crystal, can you comment on this? I thought it would be weird/confusing to have the home page show your last search terms. If I saw that I would think the content below was somehow related to them, and it isn't.

How long do terms persist? 24hrs?
(In reply to Crystal Beasley [:skinny, :crystal] from comment #2) > How long do terms persist? 24hrs? It looks like the cookie is set for 1 hour right now.
1 hour sounds pretty good to me actually. Crystal, I'd say not persisting on the home page makes sense. Just intuitively I would expect my search string to persist on the start page.
Reassigning to Crystal. We need an answer (or is comment 4 authoritative) before we know what to do here.

Competitive analysis says not to persist on home page. It's a different interface, so lets keep it as Ricky implemented.
