Bug ID: 401861
Summary: Menu search doesn't work depending on mouse placement
Component: Application Launcher (Kickoff)
Target Milestone: 1.0
There are two issues with kickoff regarding mouse placement. That is, the
location where your mouse cursor is inactive while typing into the search box.
I have recorded a screen demo of both issues, this is reproducible.
Issue 1: If the cursor is positioned in the bottom-left corner of kickoff, the
search does not work at all.
Issue 2: If the cursor is positioned over the search results area, while you're
typing, the result underneath the cursor is the item that gets chosen when you
finally press Enter. It should always launch the most relevant search result at
the top of the list when you press Enter.
I run into these problems very often, because I usually click the launcher
icon, then move my hands over to the keyboard to start typing. So my mouse
cursor usually lays to rest somewhere on top of the menu.

Note: In the video, I am using adapta and some other custom styling, but I
tested with all default Breeze and the same issues were present.
