For some reason the text doesn't show up in the search box. I'm not seeing an errors related to this. It works fine in Firefox

The text is hidden by some huge padding.
If you change the search bar's CSS to include:

Code: Select all

padding-top: 0 !important;
padding-bottom: 0 !important;
the inserted letters will appear.

I think this behaviour was discussed somewhere else on the forum. If I recall correctly it's some Chrome quirk in which the padding is used to be equal to a height directive.

That is indeed the issue. For the time being, I've added a rule for that to my SiteStyles extension. Thanks

Yeah it's the blink quirk that padding can be used to force a specific "min-height" (instead of using that keyword as intended) and "propping open" the element with stacked padding, ignoring the fact that padding by the standard means no content can be in the same place, since padding is defined as empty space between border and content, so as a result what you type won't be visible as the space left for content is 0.
I suggest you also write the site owners to let them know about this issue.
