#24468 closed enhancement (wontfix)

The same name for Plugin/Theme search fields

Maybe it would be usefull to give the plugin/theme search field in the wp-admin the same html name attribute as the field on wordpress.org.
The advantage would be that browsers (at least Firefox) will use the same dataset for autocomplete proposals. So if you first search a plugin on wordpress.org, Firefox will suggest your search keys also in wp-admin.

Firefox does cross-domain autocompletes?

Yes, based on the name-Attribute of the text-field. So if I search for any plugin in one wordpress installation, Firefox will suggest it in all other installations, the domain doesn't matter.
So if the name-attribute of the plugin search-field in wp would be also "q" suggestions would be synchronisized as well.
I don't know how other browsers behave in this case.

No further interest or activity in 2 years. This pretty much falls into user script territory if you want browser support. Closing as wontfix.
