24      field up to the first newline or up to 30 characters
25    * F3 starts search field with last search entered
26    * Search starts at cursor position (1.8beta5 and prior started
27      always at page beginning)
28    * ENTER terminates search and keeps last found text selected (if any)
29    * ESC terminates search and goes back where search began
30    * Clicking outside of the search field terminates search
31    * If search pattern is found search field is green
