Can focus be set to the textfield after the search button is pressed? This seems to be the behaviour on desktop.

But from this, it is intentionally not doing it.


Is this really a problem on mobile full page search? I doubt it as there is nothing to scroll when you tap on search. We should place focus here on mobile.

(at least when triggering the first search. after you have results, there may be something to scroll?)
