UX bug in search box (desktop for windows)

Regular

The search input breaks standard behaviour. When we click a text field with pre-existing content, the content should be selected and we can start writing new input. Spotify initially do this, but when we focus in the search box it loads the search result for the old content and removes the highlighting. This leads to highly annoying misspellings when you automatically assume default behaviour of text input.

 

Suggested fixes:

 

1. Don't highlight at all at focus (aka don't fool us).

2. Don't remove existing highlight when the search result loads.

 

See attached demo.
