Double-click to clear search

Just thought of this: why not double-click on a search (in the left menu or the Favorites bar) to clear it? That is my most frequent first step, and this shortcut would eliminate an awkward pause while I wait to see where the "Clear" button will end up after I switch to the search I want to use.

Try hitting Esc.

Right you are! I somehow missed that useful trick.

Thanks,

The tooltip hint when you hover over the Clear button now says, "Clear all search modifications." Adding "<Esc>" to this would help people to discover that the escape key is an alternative to the Clear button.

Same suggestion goes for all the other buttons that have keyboard alternatives.
