Fulltext search is almost impossible when javascript is disabled: The list with
the suggestions and the entry for fulltext search uses JS, so the only element
you can use is the button with the magnifying glass. This button sends you to
the article if it exists.

I can think of two possible solutions:

1. Change the search button into a button for fulltext search. This also fixes
bug 24248. This should be quite easy: Change the name of the search-button into
"fulltext" (and add a value="1", I don't know if this is necessary). This has
the drawback that with disabled JS you need an extra click to get to an article
as you always have to do a fulltext search.

2. Always put two buttons (go and fulltext) into the HTML source and replace
them via JS with the magnifying glass button.
