Screen capture of the problem

When you focus the search box, it will expand inside a statically sized div with overflow auto and scrollbars will fill the entire space.

The module doesn't appear to have been touched since the last time I updated.  So, there must have been a change to the Vector skin that caused it to break.  I am running the MediaWiki and extension code from trunk.
Comment 1 Derk-Jan Hartman 2011-02-27 20:36:52 UTC
It indeed seems that the current vector styling of the searchfield is no longer compatible with this JS extension. Should we simply remove the module, or does anyone want to fix it ?
Comment 2 Mark A. Hershberger 2011-03-08 23:33:05 UTC
assigning to tarball blocker, so we need to make a decision by then.
Comment 3 Mark A. Hershberger 2011-03-26 06:03:54 UTC
Think we decided this one isn't a blocker.
Comment 4 Trevor Parscal 2011-03-28 17:18:23 UTC
Yes, i added comments to the source help explain that the expandable search is NOT ment to be used in the wild.
Comment 5 Bugmeister Bot 2011-08-19 19:12:57 UTC
Unassigning default assignments.
Comment 6 Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-02-11 18:11:44 UTC
Marking as WFM; the entire search suggestions feature has been since reworked and merged into core, so this is probably no longer valid.
Comment 7 Rusty Burchfield 2013-03-24 20:32:12 UTC
This feature is still broken.  It should probably be removed.  In any case, I have no expectation that someone will make it work again.  Switching resolution to WONTFIX.
Comment 8 Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-03-24 21:52:17 UTC
Uh, I may have misunderstood this at first. This isn't about the search suggestions, but about the 'expandablesearch' component of the Vector extension?

In this case, there is currently a push to make the good parts of it into core MediaWiki. If you're interested in having this part cleaned up and merged (or even more, willing to do it yourself), please head to bug 46515 :)

Comment 11 Daniel Friesen 2013-09-15 04:30:34 UTC
Personally, I'd be 'interested' in fixing the feature... if I had the time.
Comment 12 Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-09-15 10:58:55 UTC
There is no reason this can't be reimplemented in core in the future, but Vector's implementation kinda sucked, to be honest.

Given that the component is now gone, I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
